LET'S RETURN TO OUR ROOTS

 
 
 
 

4Roots Farm & Agriculture Center is an extension of The 4R Foundation started by John Rivers. Our mission is to create a sustainable local food network to inspire students, train farmers, delight eaters and stimulate the health and economic vitality of our communities. The Farm nurtures this vision by focusing on four roots: access, education, opportunity and impact.
