Cultivating Community's farmer training program, New American Sustainable Agriculture Project (NASAP) goal is to assist immigrant and refugee farmers to build successful farm businesses that are consistent with their culture, lifestyle aspirations, and individual goals.
The NASAP growers are Latino, Somali and Sudanese farmers and gardeners who are excited about the opportunity to farm in the U.S. and produce for local markets.
Fresh Start Farms is a collective of farmers who are in the NASAP program. 'Fresh Start Farms' growers sell produce to restaurants and at farmer's markets. Produce is grown with soil health, environmental well being, and consumer happiness in mind. Although sites are not certified, farmers use organic practices and culturally appropriate growing techniques.
We are officially open for business, and everyone is invited! Come get your vegetables at our seven neighborhood farm stands, featuring Fresh Start Farms growers and fresh produce straight from our farm in Lisbon, ME. Cash, credit/debit, EBT, and WIC are all accepted.
