The Organization for Refugee and Immigrant Success is offering beginner farmer training for new Americans in Concord. Twelve new Americans will be able to grow food on up to a half-acre of land on the edge of the St. Paul’s campus. Additionally, they will have a chance to sell to restaurants and at special farmers’ markets in the neighborhoods where many new Americans live. Beginner farmers will take English language classes that will be geared toward the language of farming, and they will learn about which crops are the most apt to sell well. If you know of anyone who would like to learn more about this project, please let them know that there will be an introductory meeting on Thursday, Dec. 15, from 2 – 4 pm, at Immaculate Heart of Mary. Please contact cheryl@newamericanafricans for any additional information.
