Our Mission Statement

Cleveland Roots creates opportunities for urban agriculture and educational programs that empower people to grow their own produce. Our goals are to provide affordable access to fresh produce, promote healthy living, nurture the environment, and cultivate community.

Who We Are

Cleveland Roots was established by a group of individuals with a passion for people and plants, and collective experience in sustainable agriculture, education, and nonprofit administration. Recognizing the negative impact that food deserts have on communities, they joined together in an effort to encourage healthy living, strengthen community, and foster environmental stewardship.
