Who We Are

We are committed to collaborations rooted in food, land, and learning. Rooted evolved from a desire to merge the strengths of two vibrant Madison organizations—Center for Resilient Cities and Community GroundWorks—committed to enabling people to grow and thrive in healthy, equitable, and sustainable neighborhoods.

We have a new name and a new look, but remain the same organizations you have come to know over the past twenty years in your neighborhood, at your farmers market, in your schools, and where you garden.

COVID-19 Response

Rooted staff is practicing social distancing and working remotely as we continue to plan for better days in the summer months. Registration is now open for summer camp, farm membership, and community garden plots at our Troy Drive location. Stay tuned for more information about summer programming at our Badger Rock location in the coming weeks.

We wish you and your family a safe and healthy spring as you weather the upcoming weeks and we’re looking forward to seeing you this summer. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]
