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!
