A parcel of land at the corner of Belmont and DeWitt avenues will soon yield more than just a bumper crop of fresh produce. Thanks to almost $5,000 in funding from the Building Healthy Neighborhoods Taskforce, the community garden also will address hunger and obesity that affect the health and wellness of the area’s underserved residents.

Student Tour

Students from UCLA and UC Berkley visited NHAF to learn about the organization, agriculture, and the Hmong culture. After the meeting the students went on a tour of farms in Fresno and observed farming methods and the different corps that were being grown by Hmong farmers.

The first NHAF conference was a success and drew farmers and community leaders from Oregon, Washington, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and California. The conference focused on issues dealing with Hmong farmers throughout the US and helped to educate leaders of the 2007 farm bill. On the second day NHAF offered a tour for those interested. Thirty participated in the tour and visited three Hmong farms and Weibert Meat, the first Hmong owned slaughter facility.
