Hmong Farmers: Booted Off Their Urban Land

October 27, 2008 at 2:01 pm Leave a comment

Just want to pass along this interesting article about a 4 acre piece of
land farmed by Hmong Farmers in Fresno. The city is trying to push them
off the land to build a police substation, the land currently feeds 300
peoples. We don’t want to see this turn into another South Central Farm. I am going to follow up and see what type of support can be offered to the
Hmong Farmers.

Hmong Farmers, Fresno

Here is the article:
