Director Linda Seyler and a handful of refugees worked in the garden on somewhat rainy days when I visited the Global Garden Refugee Training Farm in May in the Albany Park neighborhood of Chicago. About 100 families, including refugees from Bhutan, Myanmar and elsewhere, have plots in the community garden. The farm, which began in 2012, became a nonprofit this spring after creating a board of directors last year, said Seyler, executive director and "head weed puller." The group receives so many requests for garden plots that there's a wait list of 60 families. Often, newly arrived refugees are so eager to begin growing foods that remind them of home that they reach out to the farm while still learning to speak English and navigate the "L."
