Fresh Start Farms is on the BBC News!

Snapshot from the BBC News feature

Earlier this summer, the Packard-Littlefield Farm in Lisbon, ME was visited by the BBC News, which was putting together a story on the Somali Bantu population in Lewiston, Maine. The story ran last week and was even featured on the front page of the BBC's website.

NASAP's Outreach Coordinator, Hussein Muktar, is interviewed in the program about his perspective on  living in Lewiston, with the farm fields providing the backdrop.

The work of Fresh Start Farms provides a powerful vehicle to help integrate refugees into the broader Maine community.  We're thrilled to see farmers included in this news clip!
