Farm-to-Freedom: Vietnamese Americans and Their Home Gardens
Author and Dallas College history professor Roy Vũ, Ph.D., will discuss how Vietnamese American home gardeners in Texas nurture and nourish a wide array of fruit trees, herbs, and vegetables in their front and backyards to remind them of who they are and where they come from. He will also explain how food gardens and micro-farms cultivated in Vietnamese “village” communities do much more than just provide produce.
