CREATING LASTING CHANGE
At Sharing Our Roots, we are working at the intersection of land justice, food sovereignty, regenerative agriculture, climate change mitigation and conservation. These elements are all interconnected and interdependent. Our 100-acre farm is a home to more than a dozen farmers who are helping us restore the land and modeling a new way of farming in our region through commons based farming – one that values farmers, respects the environment and is rooted in community.
BUILDING A LEGACY
In 2016, Sharing Our Roots acquired 100 acres of degraded corn-on-corn farmland. We are restoring it to health by keeping the soil covered, planting perennials, cleaning up waterways, and protecting wetlands and other important wildlife habitat. The Sharing Our Roots Farm allows us to build a legacy of supporting aspiring farmers, enhancing local wealth and food security, while innovating a resilient agriculture system.
Investing in farmers and their small agricultural businesses today will bring us a step closer to community-wide food security, a thriving economy by keeping wealth local, and give us a chance to slow the effects of climate change.
