Fruitful Communities starts with you!

We're building a movement of Growers and community partners like you, ​all working together to grow a more abundant, equitable, and fruitful future. No matter who you are, there's a place for you in the Fruitful Communities initiative. We're growing a more livable world for all...and that means you, too!

When you sign up to be a Community Partner, you're saying you want your neighborhood, city, and county to align its values and budget to promote the growth of regenerative landscapes, thereby committing to ecological restoration, societal equity, and sustainable jobs growth.

Together, we can grow more Fruitful Communities!​

FRUITFUL COMMUNITIES

So, what's a Fruitful Community?

Fruitful Communities can come in a variety of forms, scales, and aesthetic preferences, and should also mirror the character of an area’s people, history, and values. There is no one-size-fits-all, but all Fruitful Communities should strive for at least 1 of these 4 traits.

1

Official adoption of the Fruitful Communities Initiative by at least 1 governing body (city or county government, or a neighborhood association).

2

At least 1 Fruitful Communities District. A Fruitful Communities District is an area with at least 10,000 sqft of regenerative landscaping.

3

Any area with at least 1 Fruitful Communities Partner Group. A Partner Group is an official Roots Down chapter with at least 5 members.

4

Any area that is in the process of developing any of the first 3 traits. If the people are putting in the work, then you're building a Fruitful Community!
