Program Description

Event Details

Global Greens is an urban agriculture program that reconnects New Americans with the land by offering a spectrum of gardening and farming opportunities. Global Greens connects more than 150 families each year to community gardening plots and manages an 8.5 acre incubator farm in West Des Moines where 20 families are starting small farming businesses. Global Greens continues to support program graduates who have moved their businesses off of the incubator farm. Since 2015, Global Greens farmers have earned more than $750,000 in sales revenue. Tika Bhandari will share her farming story with us and the value Global Greens has had in her life.
