The Alliance Community Garden Project

As a program for the Alliance for Multicultural Community Services, the Alliance Community Garden Project began in October 2010 with the goal of training refugees in farming methods applicable in their new community. To date, 27 refugee growers from Bhutan have registered with the program; and in addition to farming training, they receive English classes from the Alliance. Currently utilizing two acres of land adjacent to a warehouse-style building for Amy Food, Inc., the goal is to expand the program onto 70 acres of land, develop refugee self-sufficiency, and provide organic produce to the City of Houston.
