Community partnerships are essential to the success of our New Roots programs. For example, our partnership with Bellair Farm benefits our farmers and gardeners who receive seedlings produced in the Bellair greenhouse each spring. The relationships formed with the staff at Bellair Farm have led to mutually supportive marketing and production opportunities and are fostering inclusive community building. Creating a resilient and equitable local food system depends on so much more than just having enough food to put on the table. New Roots is thankful to all our local partners for supporting each other through the past year of the pandemic as we start the 2021 growing season with hope and visions of a vibrant and abundant future.
