Mission Statement

Nuestras Raíces is a grass-roots organization that promotes economic, human and community development in Holyoke, Massachusetts through projects relating to food, agriculture and the environment.

Description

Nuestras Raíces was founded in 1992 by the members of La Finquita community garden in South Holyoke to manage the garden and with the goal of developing a greenhouse in downtown Holyoke. Nuestras Raíces is building cultural pride as well as the ability of low-income Latinos in Holyoke to address environmental, economic development, substance abuse, and food security issues. We are currently working on projects involving community gardens, youth development, economic development, women's leadership, and environmental justice, including our Tierra de Oportunidades project, a beginning farmer training project and new business incubator, environmental conservation and stewardship project, youth development initiative and cultural development project all on a beautiful 30 acres by the Connecticut River in Holyoke. Come help us out with these exciting initiatives!
