Our Hmong farmers, have been having a hard time with the very cold temperatures this winter, but because they use a variety of farming techniques like using plot coverings, they are able to grow more produce for longer into the colder temperatures. If you haven’t watched the video we shot about the Hmong growers presence at our local market, you must check it out!
