Mission Statement

New Britain ROOTS, a youth engaged nonprofit, aims to fight food insecurity by making healthy food accessible and affordable. ROOTS works collaboratively with New Britain schools to provide educational programs on sustainable agriculture, food justice, and healthy eating practices. ROOTS also works with Urth Farms, a local urban farm to connect youth to organic food production. The ROOTS Mobile Farmers Market makes stops in neighborhoods that have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. ROOTS partners with local organizations in New Britain to make the Mobile Market accessible to city residents


New Britain ROOTS was formed to promote agricultural education and fight food insecurity for the New Britain community. Our mission is met by building partnerships with schools through school gardens and out of school time programming. Additionally, we continue to work to increase access and affordability of nutritious locally grown produce. Our Garden Club curriculum for elementary school has been successfully used for six years through afterschool programs and the Summer Enrichment Experience. ROOTS provides agricultural education from Grades 2-12. Our high school program, City Growers, combines summer youth employment at gardens and Urth Farms as well as food and nutrition education at New Britain High School during the school year.
