Growing vegetables for a cause

Prakash Thombre and his wife, Kyrmen, grow unique vegetables on their plot along Corduroy Road, Oregon. Many of the vegetables and herbs have Asiatic roots and are known for their health benefits and medicinal value. Pictured, Thombre with sunflowers (some measuring over 18 inches in diameter), that will be harvested and dried for sunflower oil. Donations for the vegetables go to the non-profit organization, Educational Uplift Minority, which provides educational opportunity for under-privileged children, many who are caught in the cycle of human trafficking. For more information about Thombre's charitable organization contact Prakash at or call 419-836-6300. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean)
