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. They also sell natural dye kits made from plants grown on their farm, and organic textiles from the Open Arms Studio.
