Demonstration Foodscape:

The demonstration foodscape at The Root will experiment with sustainable growing techniques inspired by permaculture and regenerative agriculture practices that demonstrate water conservation strategies and help us adapt to the impacts of climate change. Stay tuned for future education programs and volunteer opportunities!

In the summer of 2021 we began regeneration at the site with permaculture swales, soil building and trial plantings of veggies - giving this portion of our project a chance to tell us what is possible in this dry and challenging site. Stormwater management will give us ponds and drainage to ensure longevity to stability of the land and its restoration.
