100 families from Bhutan, Burma, Africa, and elsewhere have turned a vacant lot into an urban farm where they grow organic vegetables for home consumption and for selling to neighbors in Albany Park, Chicago and surrounding communities. As a non-profit, Global Garden Refugee Training Farm's mission is to:
- Improve access to fresh vegetables for newly arrived refugee families and their urban neighbors;
- Feed the souls of displaced farmers through re-connection with the soil and food production;
- Provide supplemental income for participating refugee farmers; and
- Foster new, refugee-operated farms.
