World Garden

Over the past few years, we have been thrilled to host a community of recent immigrants from the Central African country of Burundi. Located in large plots adjacent to the Family Garden, the World Garden provides the space needed for these families to cultivate the corn, beans, squash, amaranth, and other traditional vegetables they enjoy.  Many of them former agrarians, we’re delighted to give them the opportunity to grow traditional Burundi crops in American soil, and showcase their farming techniques for visitors.
