The International Rescue Committee (IRC) brought 400 refugees to the USA. These refugees are taking part in the New Roots program, a “6-year-old effort aims to help refugees get used to their new countries by allowing them to do something that is familiar and empowering: growing things”, reports USA Today. The program supports 17 urban farms in nine US cities, where refugees grow vegetables and harvest or sell at farmers markets.
