After many seasons studying and working around the world, and in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee’s New Roots program, and while in Denver with Denver Urban Gardens, she has recently founded her own non-profit entity focused on gardens for and by refugee populations: ReGeneration Now, continuing her focus on creating gardens for and by refugee populations. Listen in!
