Mission Statement

The mission of the Roots in Boots Urban Farm is to provide locally grown organic fruits and vegetables to people living in the Morrisania area of the Bronx, currently a "food desert". We're also going to establish a mentoring program to help residents of the community achieve their full potential. The integration of these two programs provides opportunities for experiential learning, cooperation and growth.
