    Inspirational because a pressing need was fulfilled by people who care about other people. This kitchen is an act of Social Positive Deviance that is not driven by capitalism.

    I am surprised that this family farm exists in the U.S. I don't know what a CSA farm is. I'm understanding that this black family owns the farm, grows the vegetables and markets them. How did they acquire the land? One lady who escaped Burundi owns the land?

    I just felt connected to the family. Also reminded of the quote" HArdwork always pays",it just shows in this family.The way they are growing- not only organic way of farming also how organic their emotions, thoughts and living is. The crowd who eat this kind of grown food will also thrive with positivity.

    I feel inspired by these beautiful people!caring for the Earth with such compassion and love. I am very much reminded of my Italian grandmother’s garden, and see how growing vegetables and fruit is a very real way of making community and fostering hope.

    Portland, OR is nearby. I am inspired that this community connection with Nature is there. Their Connection strengthens us all.

    How beautiful life is. I can so relate to this with my roots in Africa. It is hard work, I am sure.

    I want to go to their home for dinner! Delicious healthy looking food.

    Very inspired by how this family adapted to Oregon after the trauma of their lives. Another small step toward a global village. Burundi has great traditional farmers. Small organic farms are a hope for the future.
