About Us
When war struck Burundi, Bizimana Charles’ family lost the land they farmed as they fled the country, eventually landing in a Tanzanian refugee camp. There Bizimana cared for his two children, taught school, and grew vegetables on a tiny plot. In 2009, Bizimana and his children resettled in Des Moines as refugees. Through the LSI Global Greens program, he began to farm again. Today, Bizimana grows eggplant, broccoli, cabbage, and many other crops in Earlham, IA.
