Fruitful Communities and edible environm

Growing the

next generation of land stewards.

Food. Earth. People.

We're building a world where every person has access to fresh food and thriving ecosystems that feed our soils and the people. We teach community leaderslandscapers, teenagers and their parents how to grow food, grow local ecology, and grow community through regenerative agriculture practices. Anyone can be a Grower, and we show you how! 

Grow Food

We dream of a world where every American has as much food as they need within a 15-minute walk from their home. We're making that dream a reality by turning everyday people into Food Growers. With a few square feet, a little knowledge, and a whole lot of heart anyone can create their own micro-food system. Yes, even you!

Grow Ecology

Listen, not everyone has a green thumb. Some of us are better at killing plants than growing them. That's ok! That just means you're a Dirt Grower, and we'll show you how to turn all those dead plants (and leaves) into the compost and rich soil our systems need to grow. This is just one way you can help...we'll give you the tools you need to help turn your community into thriving ecosystems.

Grow Community

Like people a lot more than plants? There's a place for you, too! Every regenerative food system needs People Growers to organize events, distribute food, and foster community at the grassroots. If you've ever found yourself organizing a school club or neighborhood committee, or arranging the latest hangout, well, you're just who we need! We'll help you get plugged into local opportunities to help your community to thrive and take root.

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 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!

More coming soon...
Green jobs

We're revolutionizing America's food systems by creating a vast independent food network that incorporates renewable energy, non-profit orgs, governments, and communities. This means we're participating in the Green Jobs movement, helping create abundance, sustainability, and equity for Americans from all walks of life. 

More coming soon...

What We Do

We've built educational and planning programs that inspire, educate, and connect the next generation of Growers with the resources, knowledge, and tools they need to build thriving food systems and communities.
