SUPPORTING OTHER LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOOD INITIATIVES

BUILDING ROOTS

Building Roots enables people to create socially cohesive communities.  We envision vibrant, resilient neighbourhoods. Since 2013 this vision has led us to co-create innovative projects  that provide fresh food access, meaningful engagement, and transform  communities. To achieve this we form effective partnerships with  residents, public agencies, neighbourhood organizations and businesses.In 2019 we launched a charity to expand this work, the Growing  Neighbourhoods Foundation. We welcome you to explore this website and  get involved.
