Collective Roots is a community-based nonprofit. Based in East Palo Alto, CA, which seeks to educate and engage youth and communities in food system change through sustainable programs that impact health, education, and the environment.
Collective Roots achieves its mission through the innovative integration and implementation of two key program areas: community-based and school-based programs. These include farmers' markets, seed and tool lending libraries, and free cooking and nutrition. They also assist communities, individuals, and organizations in starting and maintaining their own personal farms and gardens.
Collective Roots will be helping Blueseed to create and maintain a space for growing healthy and delicious produce aboard, which will then be available for environmentally-conscious Blueseed tenants.
