Seeds of Hope
The farming techniques of Africa are being handed down from one generation to the next on a tiny farm in East Aurora. Each day, Somali Bantu parents are there with their young children, planting seeds, tending crops or harvesting a small bit of produce. Their profits are meager, but the tradition is rich.
This Sunday, Denverites will have an opportunity to help out by purchasing some of that harvest at the Farmer and Food Artisan 2007 Road Tour outside of the southeast Denver Whole Foods, 7400 E. Hampden Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Along with live music, there will be chef-prepared lunches available for $6, with proceeds going to the Somali Bantu Community Development Council.
Out of Africa, into Denver. For more information, go to www.somalibantucolorado.org or call 303-488-2000. – Luke Turf
