Urban Roots is founded on the idea that food is a powerful tool for academic and sustainable agriculture instruction. In order to realize the mission of growing healthy minds, bodies and communities, Urban Roots provides school and farm-based opportunities for teachers, students, families and future farmers. Urban Roots is a part of a larger movement in Northern Nevada to make the place we live abundant with healthy food, rich soil, and deep relationships with each other and the land.
