our youth farm
Roots Rising is planning a Youth Farm!
The farm will integrate our food justice and youth development work while supporting the deepest goals of our organization: connecting youth to the land and making healthy food available for all.
“From our organization’s beginning, the community has had our back. It truly takes a village to launch a farm, and we feel the upwelling of excitement for this new initiative. Roots Rising’s Youth Farm will give our organization a home where it truly belongs- right in the heart of our city and community,”
—Roots Rising Co-Directors, Jamie Samowitz and Jessica Vecchia.
