Enhancing the quality of life for all refugees from Burma in Minnesota

Gardening Project

Farming is a common way of life for Karen people in Burma, but here in St. Paul, refugees have a limited opportunity to grow food. Partnering with Arrive Ministries, we provide opportunities for refugees from Burma to return to their roots in farming.

  • Community Gardens: We offer gardening spaces to more than 150 refugees in the St. Paul area through partnerships between KOM, Arrive Ministries, and local churches and community gardens. Gardeners enjoy this opportunity to grow their own food, enhance social interaction, and preserve a rich cultural tradition.
