With land donated by Church by the Side of the Road in Tukwila, International Rescue Committee’s New Roots Program has established a space where primarily Bhutanese refugee families can grow culturally relevant foods in 23 – 500 square foot plots. One plot also helps support local food banks with fresh produce.
