Nuestras Raíces is the oldest and largest urban agriculture and economic development organization working on behalf of New England's Latino community.
Nuestras Raíces has been promoting urban agriculture, food justice, food access, economic development, and social justice across western Massachusetts since 1992. Our mission is to create healthy environments, celebrate “agri-culture,” and harness our collective energy to advance our vision of a just and sustainable future. We are nationally recognized, but our work is here-- in the greater Holyoke area-- in solidarity with our vibrant Latino cultures.
To maintain Nuestras Raíces' programs, we need people like you! With your donation, the organization can continue inspiring and empowering the community with education, support, and resources!
Volunteers are at the heart of Nuestras Raíces. The donation of time is crucial to our daily operations and the success of specialty programs. We offer a variety of opportunities for those with a desire to assist and support their community!
