New CSA aims to support immigrants’ cultural traditions

This year, a new CSA named Sanctuary Herbs of Providence was formed, specializing in tea blends and medicinal herbs.

Sanctuary was launched by Blue Skys farmer Christina Dedora and two former SCLT staff (Liza Sutton and Catherine Brown). Over the years, all three women have worked closely with immigrant and refugee farmers, and were motivated to form the business and chose its name as a result of the anti-immigrant policies and actions during the Trump era. Sanctuary Herbs aims to support local immigrant farmers’ products and cultural traditions. Currently, they have partnered with six farmers, including some from Liberia and from Hmong areas of Southeast Asia.
Christina, who grows at Urban Edge Farm in Cranston, has been selling herbal tea blends since receiving a grant a few years back to build a drying room for her business. She also sells produce through her Blue Skys Farm CSA.

There are several local CSAs that are either run by farmers who were trained by SCLT staff, or who grow on land we manage. Most have pick-up locations in Providence and nearby. Find out more about them here.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
