Food News-Rural Houston Farmers Rebound Slowly

Usually, I would write a small recap of the stories I read for Food News. But I won't here. Because this story is heartbreaking and hopeful. There are layers to it involving immigrants who have lived here for generations and their families, self-sufficiency and the need for help, and farmers, American Farmers, who have made a life for themselves in Texas, a life which is now in jeopardy.


Please go read it here, "Houston's Water Spinach Village is Fighting for It's Life", and let me know what you think.



This is the Water Spinach that the article talks about. It may have even come from the very farms in the story.
