Vendor Spotlight: 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 Elgin. 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, New Leaf grows for the farmers‘ market, local makers and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares (pick-ups are available at TFM at Mueller). Stop by their booth for a variety of fresh veggies on Sundays at Mueller!
