Abstract

 

A farm tended by refugees has popped up on the west side of Indianapolis. This piece highlights how it is helping a community on the fringes really keep their culture and traditions while also integrating into a new home. An interview with the farm’s creator is the main source of information about the project. A lifetime of human rights and international work has led her to this project that has been her best effort to assist a vulnerable population.
