Growing communities by growing food, Fresh Roots cultivates engaging and educational school farms and programs that catalyze healthy eating, ecological stewardship, and community celebration. Believing that big ideas can sprout from little gardens and a desire to do things differently, Fresh Roots' harvests food as an inspiring mobilizing force for good. Creating an educational model that serves as a first step towards positive, personal and system change, working together to feed the school cafeterias, the neighbours, and the greater communities while generating a revenue to support their projects. From growing, harvesting, preparing and selling, they provide opportunities for youth to learn about themselves and empower them to gain a sense of their own worth. Fresh Roots, growing more than just garden, they grow thriving communities.
