Agricultores

Season 1 Episode 107 | 26m 45s

As a so-called “nation of immigrants,” the U.S. has variously welcomed and rejected people who come here from other countries. Recognizing the value of diversity both in farming and culture, Virginia State University runs a Small Farm Outreach Program to direct resources, information, and support to people of color. Learn how immigrants in rural Virginia succeed as small farm “agricultores”.
