This panel was a part of The Common Table inaugural exhibit at the 2014 Minnesota State Fair. The exhibit theme was Local Food Stories, and this panel showcased the nonprofit organization Central Minnesota Sustainability Project (CMSP) in St. Cloud, Minnesota. CMSP works with primarily immigrant and refugee populations to create a “safe place” through community gardening.

Uganda to St. Cloud Home in the Garden is Florence Orionzi’s story of immigrating from Uganda to the United States. While this is Florence’s story, she is one of many women who are a part of the thriving community that makes up the Maine Prairie Community Garden.
