Good News Blog: Plant It Forward

“My heart had been changed. And my life was probably going to change.”

I’m very excited about the We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB, and I want to thank Damyanti Biswas for inviting me to participate.

For the blogfest, in light of all the tragic, political, warring news we typically hear from around the world, Damyanti asked us to highlight a news story that “shows love, humanity, and brotherhood.”

The blogfest will take place the last day of each month now through the end of the year.

Today I’m highlighting this article about refugees and U.S. citizens coming together to “plant it forward.”

Please visit these other blogs for more good news, and let me know of any that you may have!

    Hi Linda – what a brilliant scheme for refugees … so pleased things are working out for them and I bet Houston has been blessed with all the fresh produce. I sincerely hope the weather doesn’t disrupt too much in the next day or two. So great to see Sarment shine and use his agricultural skills … wonderful project – thanks and cheers Hilary

    Wow! It’s inspiring to think of immigrants using land to find a place in the American economy to work and contribute to society. I love that this refugee and his family are using their agricultural experience to help provide food in the Houston area. And it’s timely given the rains and storms pummeling that city. There’s so much we can do. Thanks for sharing this article.
