Summer Harvest: Washington County Farm Helps Educate Immigrant Farmers on Sustainable Produce

June 12, 2018 07:14 PM

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has partnered with The Food Group to provide meals for children this summer. The nonprofit helps stretch a dollar by buying food in bulk and growing its own produce. 

The Food Group runs an educational farm and food hub in Marine on St. Croix called Big River Farms. There, they specialize in educating immigrants and farmers of color on how to grow sustainable, organic produce. Some of that food ends up at local food shelves.
