New Roots CO
New Roots CO (NRCO) is a non-profit organization fostering resilience and permaculture ethics in our local food system as a whole.
We look at modern food systems through a permaculture lens to enhance environmental, nutritional, economic and community health through education, outreach and partnership.
NRCO finds the connections between food system elements and features to be more important than the elements and features by themselves. Through partnerships, we strengthen the network between farmers, ranchers, distributors, educators and institutes, consumers, land owners, permaculturists and other non-profits.
NRCO’s programming is created for the benefit of local producers, land owners, distributors, gardeners, students and all community members. We host an annual food system summit to create space for networking and the sharing of ideas. We offer free educational programming and professional development opportunities. We also produce the “New Roots Community Radio Hour” podcast, where we give local professionals an opportunity to share their insight.
