In sustainable food circles, the @intervalecenter is a well-known and regarded resource for farmers emerging and established. The 360-acre campus in Burlington, VT has served as an educational resource, incubator and learning center for more than three decades. Whetstone was fortunate to collaborate with staffers Sarah Alexander and Abby Portman on a story about the New Farms for New Americans, a community-based gardening and agriculture program for refugees and immigrants. Refugees resettle to seek safety, freedom, and the chance to reclaim a life and future for themselves and their families. Janine Ndagijimana, a farmer from Tanzania is one the program’s major success stories.“ Through NFNA, gardeners and farmers are able to access tracts of fertile land to grow fresh, organic, and culturally significant crops. Men, women, and children from every corner of the world can be found tending their fields and reaping the harvest.” Learn more about Janine’s story — as told by Sarah Alexander and shot by Abby Portman — in the second print edition of Whetstone.
