Common Roots, Inc
Common Roots' Farmstand operates just like a small grocery store, with our organic vegetables and flowers, plant starts, and many other local food products! Common Roots grew out of a gathering of parents, teachers, and farmers who met in 2005 to discuss health, nutrition, and food systems. Today we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization connecting farmers, educators, youth, families, and the wider community in building a sustainable future through place-based education and service programs. Our main objectives are to: support youth in becoming responsible global citizens, advocate for improved school food systems and sustainable local agriculture, provide hands-on learning experiences to advance food and nutrition awareness, support community engagement through internships and service learning opportunities, participate in natural resource planning for ecosystem stewardship, and cultivate partnerships that strengthen food security and create community.
