From Terrai to Sellwood: A Story about Radishes

 Melati Kaye reports on Nepali women refugees who are now gardening in the Portland neighborhood of Sellwood in a once abandoned lot.   The women were given aid  by Mercy Corps'  New American Agriculture Project which assists refugees and immigrants starting small scale farm enterprises in the greater Portland area. The program helps participants to market nutritious food in local outlets through the Pacific Northwest.

Good reporting. I've seen these women in the neighborhood but was unaware of their story. Thanks from shedding some light on their situation and ways for folks to help.Dave Mazza
