Roots and Wisdom's mission is to engage the diverse population of Schenectady County - particularly youth - in serving their community through the support of a sustainable local food system. Participants will experience personal growth and development leading to positive social change.
Schenectady County youth and adults work together to grow organic vegetables for donation to local food pantries and shelters and for sale throughout the county. Workshops and discussions about nutrition, sustainable agriculture, food systems, leadership, diversity and service are also an integral part of the program.
