School Based Programs
Collective Roots works with children, youth and adults to design and sustain organic gardens on school and community sites. These sites are linked with kindergarten through twelfth grade curriculum that meets California state science standards as well as health and nutrition curriculum that promotes school, community and state health/nutrition goals.

Community Based Programs
We engage residents and stakeholders in a full-scale initiative to increase access to fresh, local, healthy and affordable fresh produce.
