Harvest helps area refugees



This summer, I wrote about a new effort to help area refugees. The Imani Multicultural Center had just started a garden, where two families from Burundi were growing tomatoes. For the past month or so, those refugees have been picking a bumper crop. The tomatoes have fed several area families–and provided some extra income to the gardeners. 

Now, you can get some of those tomatoes–the garden is available for pick-your-own. Email for details or call 540/308-3730.
