"Grow Hope" Garden Opens Farm Stand To Help Refugees
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Recently we told you about the "Grow Hope" Garden in Twin Falls, where refugees learn English, agriculture, and business skills.
The good news is this hot weather has the crops growing nicely. And the Grow Hope farm stand is open for business now.
The refugees are learning cashier skills, as well as how to interact with customers who come to buy the vegetables that are for sale.
Lindsay Kevan, Grow Hope Executive Director, says, "We're open Saturdays at the Twin Falls Farmers Market across from the Expo Center on North College Road. And then we're open on Wednesday at the Twin Falls Reformed Church on the corner of Pole Line and Grandview from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m."
Kevan says the farm stand is selling spinach, mixed greens, beets, and peas, along with a variety of other hearty vegetables.
She says their hours at the Farmers Market just off North College Road are from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
