Rochester Roots

Rochester Roots aims to develop community self-reliance by helping low-income people obtain nutritious, locally grown food and then develop and market urban produce and products.  To do so, it works with schools and community partners to transform underutilized schoolyards into urban gardens that rely on sustainable agriculture techniques and to develop and market garden-based products that are sold to the public.  The group currently works with 3 elementary schools in low-income areas of the city, where it grows over 3 tons of produce a year.
