“New Roots Urban Farm is a farming collective in North St. Louis that provides organic produce to the community. Our mission is threefold:
Education- We aim to be a resource to the community in sharing knowledge about how to grow food in and for your own neighborhood.
Sustainability- We aim for our efforts to grow food to be regenerative to the land, increasing the fertility and depth of our soil. We divert some of the organic matter in the wastestream of the city onto our land, compost, and cover crop. And even on our tiny intensively planted 1/3 of an acre, we keep one bed fallow each year to serve as a composting windrow.
Food Security- We aim to make healthy food available to those who wouldn’t normally have access to it. We have a small CSA to financially support our efforts, and we sell some at market, but we try to keep a fair amount of the food in the neighborhood.
