Why We Love It: This group of refugee farmers from Bhutan, Burma, Congo, Cuba, Eritrea, Iraq, Liberia, Sudan, Somalia, Togo, and Uzbekistan are committed to sustainable farming and stay away from fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Gila is supported by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Phoenix, which promotes economic empowerment, household food security and self-sufficiency. You can find their produce at farmers market or through their CSA.

About Gila Farm's CSA: Members of the Gila Farm Cooperative CSA aren't just bolstering local agriculture; they're supporting refugee farmers. The International Rescue Committee, a nonprofit that works with refugees in more than 40 countries, helped establish the cooperative, which welcomes farmers from countries such as Bhutan, Burma, Iraq, Liberia, Sudan and Somalia. Shares ($25 per week for 8, 10 or 12 weeks) can be picked up at the IRC Phoenix Office in Glendale, the Redemption Church in Tempe, the Duck & Decanter in Phoenix or the Downtown Phoenix Public Market. Members can also donate shares to other low-income refugee families who might not otherwise be able to afford them.
