The Changing Seasons

As the summer begins to fade and fall slowly creeps in, we are grateful for the cooler weather, the change in vegetables and the excitement of the next season. We continue to go to markets, hoping that people will come and see what pumpkins, gourds and greens we will have in the coming months. Farmers are working hard in the fields and are able to stay longer, now that the heat is fading. Staff are preparing for program evaluations, the beginning of English classes and planning already for next year. Farmers are harvesting sweet potatoes and talking about when to plant garlic. The transition to fall is beginning, but we are trying to stay present with this season. Change is upon us, and we are excited to see what the rest of the year will bring.

Come and see us at markets this month, while you can still get fresh produce that is grown by refugee farmers right here in Kansas City!

It Begins!

This weekend New Roots started the market season! CSA friends came and picked up produce from their farmers. Farmers connected with customers from last year and new farmers made their first sales. We are so grateful for the volunteers who are joining us this season on early Saturday mornings and weekday nights. We couldn’t do it without them!

Come out and visit our farmers starting weekday market this week- and if you missed out last weekend, we’ll be out again this weekend! Check out our market page for specific days and times. Hope to see you this week!
