Hawa began gardening with the New American Sustainable Agriculture Project (NASAP) in 2005, and soon became the first Somali in Lewiston with her own farming business. Today, Hawa is a leader and mentor among the Somali farmers, and grows a variety of crops including greens, corn, and herbs that she sells at the Lewiston Farmers’ Market. Her son Issac follows his mother’s lead by producing cut flowers that he sells at his mother’s stand.  (Above photo and information was provided courtesy of Cultivating Community’s blog).
