Get Rooted

Community GroundWorks and Center for Resilient Cities have joined forces to become Rooted


Collaborations rooted in food, land, and learning.


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.
