EPISODE 14: GROWING TOGETHER IN DETROIT (FT. BANDHU GARDENS)

This week, Nina interviews Emily Staugaitis and Minara Begum of Bandhu Gardens, an organization in Detroit that’s dedicated to amplifying the culinary talent and economic opportunities of Bangladeshi women in the area. You can find Bandhu Gardens online at bandhugardens.com. A huge thank you to Emily, Minara, and Minara’s family for sharing an afternoon with us earlier this spring–it’s a day we will treasure dearly.
