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

Loving Roots is a small-scale, beyond-organic, regenerative vegetable farm operating at EarthDance Organic Farm School. I grow relationships. I know all of my customers and delivers directly to them weekly. My relationships go beyond the vegetables, and I care about who gets my food. I’m not seeking to get larger, but to get more efficient on the ground I farm. 

I specialize in growing greens all year by selecting heat tolerant varieties, hydrocooling with mist 3-4 times per day, and setting out healthy transplants under shade cloth for 10-14 days.

Loving Roots regularly accepts volunteers. Contact me for more info.
