Why Collective Roots Matters

At Collective Roots, we build breathtaking school gardens – unique open spaces where both our students’ minds and our community’s spirit can take root. We are also working to change our food system – creating access to local, sustainable produce for the families that need it the most. By honoring our valley’s abundant past while celebrating a healthy, sustainable future, we are building a food system that is robust, just, and proudly local.

But we can’t do it without your help.

Garden Based Learning
We work with youth and adults to design and sustain organic gardens on school and community sites that are linked with kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum provided by Collective Roots.

Food System Change
We engage residents and stakeholders in a full-scale initiative to increase access to fresh, local, healthy and affordable fresh produce through community-based projects that build resident capacity.
