It has been a long and winding road, but after an extensive, multi-year search, we are thrilled to announce the acquisition of 923 Barker Road in Pittsfield, paving the way for the launch of our much-anticipated Farm!

 

More than just a farm, the property will serve as Roots Rising’s long-awaited homebase, housing both offices and an education center. The farm will be a work site for our teens, a community hub, a green oasis, and a headquarters to amplify our legacy of food justice work.

 

We envision this teen-powered, community-centered farm to be a training ground for the next generation of food system and community changemakers. And we aim for the farm to be a source of resilience, inspiration and pride, both for the City of Pittsfield and beyond.

Support the Next Phase

Finding land for the Roots Rising Farm is just the first step! Our community has supported Roots Rising from the start, and we'll need community support to continue our current programs and create a thriving, community-centered farm.

 

If you can, please donate today.
