ABOUT NEW LEAF AGRICULTURE
New Leaf Agriculture
is a nonprofit social enterprise of the Multicultural Refugee Coalition. They support refugee families through a community garden plot in Austin, and in early 2018 they launched a commercial farm in nearby Elgin, TX. The New Leaf Farm employs organic and sustainable practices while training refugee farmers for paid agricultural work that is dignified, in-demand and familiar from their countries of origin. Established on a conservation easement, their farm grows directly for the farmers’ market, local makers and also sells produce through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model.

All will be posted on our IGTV page afterward. The tour is FREE, but we are encouraging donations to help the market cover our increased costs and lost revenue due to COVID-19.
