“New Roots challenges our current food systems by creating urban agriculture models, teaching and empowering inner city youth through food production and cooking, and feeding and nourishing ourselves and others in the St. Louis community.”
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.
If you’d like to come check us out and learn more, you are welcome to come meet up with us during one of our work days on Tuesday or Sunday mornings.
You can also join our weekly CSA to pick up at the farm (contact us for season specific details, or sign up to get added to our volunteer list.
