    About the cause: Transplanting Traditions Community Farm (TTCF) is a project of the Orange County Partnership for Young Children. This venture parcels farm land to refugees from Burma, teaches them to successfully farm in our temperate climate, and empowers them to sell their produce through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and through local farmers? markets. TTCF is not a hand-out, it is a hand-up. The money raised through our fundraiser will help TTCF broaden and deepen their good work. Learn more.
