This morning I listened with joy to a radio story on the New Roots for Refugees program we worked together to create at Cultivate Kansas City and Catholic Charities. The story was actually broadcast a year ago but has been circulating again on social media, perhaps because it is an inspiring reminder of the important work of helping refugees resettle into safety and a new life. The dedication of these farmers is amazing and it is transforming the urban landscape as more and more refugee-owned farms are popping up across Kansas City. Equally impressive is the hard work of the staff that has developed this program into such a success. Thank you all for what you do.
