“Pure food from the heart. Grown with love always.”

Loving Roots Urban Farm is a small-scale, no-till, beyond-organic vegetable farm using regenerative practices operating at EarthDance Organic Farm School. Jill focuses on fostering community relationships, knowing each of her customers and chefs, being a good steward of the earth and passionately growing food with love. 

Jill specializes in growing high-quality greens (even in the hot season) by selecting heat tolerant varieties, using hydrocooling methods, growing healthy transplants and using shade cloth. By farming on a small plot, Jill is able to tend to and love the soil, organisms, plants, volunteers, customers and herself through hands-on practices and deep care.

Loving Roots regularly accepts volunteers. Contact Jill for more info!
