Fruitful Communities and edible environm

Greener cities for a more equitable future.

Food. Earth. People.

We work with governments to build greener, more productive spaces in order to spur green jobs growth, and provide ecology education for teenagers and their parents. Join us as we grow a world where every person has access to the fresh food and thriving ecosystems that feed our soils and our communities.

Fruitful Communities.

We dream of a world where every American has as much food as they need within a 5-minute walk from their home. That starts by showing governments how to take a small portion of their landscape maintenance and beautification budgets to build Productive Urban Landscapes (PULs), edible greenspaces that reduce food insecurity, grow green jobs, and become centers of community building and youth education.

Grow, Don't Mow.

Next, we offer free training to existing and new landscapers so they can design, install, and maintain ecological landscapes. We also work with non-profits, community leaders, and corporate sponsors to build as many Productive Urban Landscapes as possible, multiplying the impact of throughout the community.

#GreenHive.

Throughout the process of designing, installing, and maintaining Productive Urban Landscapes, we include members of the #GreenHive, our leadership club for eco-conscious teens and their parents. Teens get to design and build their own spaces, develop as leaders, and make lifelong friendships, all while growing a unique climate change solution.

Our mission in action.

We're more than a business; we're a movement. That's why everything we do is focused on growing a larger, more powerful food justice organization from the grass roots up. These are just some of the things we're doing to build a greener future. 
Pay what you can

Our goal is to build the largest action-oriented eco-organization on the planet, that's why Roots Down subscriptions are pay what you can. Sign up for a monthly draw, make a one-time payment, or never pay us at all. No matter what you choose, you're a valued member of the Roots Down family!

Our work

The foundation of our work is building Productive Urban Landscapes. Check out a gallery of our past projects and case studies, and see how you can help us develop even more landscapes throughout Dekalb County, GA. We're always looking for volunteers, donors, and supporters to help bring these landscapes to life!

More coming soon...
Our giving

To ensure we're spreading abundance throughout our network, we give a minimum of 10% of our proceeds every month to organizations in our network. You can feel good about supporting Roots Down because you know your dollars are going to building parks, pollinator meadows, supporting urban farmers and more!

Our programs.

We inspire, educate, and connect the governments, communities, landscapers, and youth leaders with the resources, knowledge, and tools they need to build thriving food systems through our 3 keystone programs.
