Raices is a program dedicated to growing fresh, organic food and sharing resources and knowledge to promote health, leadership, community building and economic well-being. The program has a one-acre community garden for families who want to grow food for their home, and has partnered with community members across the valley to provide more growing land for members who want to learn how to grow food for sale. All Raices members are Spanish-speaking members of our community. Learn more at nextdoorinc.org/raices.
