Umurima Wa Burundi

In addition to growing food for their households and to earn supplemental income, they also come together to share stories, to practice their English, to hold one another’s babies, and to compare notes on unfamiliar American customs and systems. Sometimes produce from Umurima is sold at farmers markets or included in you weekly farm share.
