Nuestras Raíces is a grassroots urban agriculture organization based in Holyoke, MA. Our mission is to create healthy environments, celebrate “agri-culture,” harness our collective energy, and to advance our vision of a just and sustainable future.
Connecting People with Land
The founding members of Nuestras Raíces were all farmers from Puerto Rico who took measures into their own hands.
We educate people and increase their knowledge to create a more fair and sustainable community.
Advocating for Food Justice
We are committed to creating change in food and agriculture policies at the local, regional, and national levels.
“By engaging entire families, developing youth, forming effective partnerships, and implementing an equitable, culturally-based school and community food system, Nuestra Comida builds healthy, respectful and sustainable communities.”
– Nuestra Comida Theory of Change
Funding support for the Nuestra Comida initiative is generously provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
