Who are we?

The Mission of New Roots is to support healthy, local, sustainable food access through education, outreach, and partnership.

Our Vision is to cultivate a community where every individual in the Eagle River Valley has access to local, nourishing, and sustainable food resources. We seek to achieve this vision by increasing access to healthy food, increasing awareness and knowledge of nutrition and our programs, and connecting people to other available resources.

Our Projects:

Garden Classes – On Sundays throughout the summer, Mater Gardener Evan Ellis, will be holding free classes for those who want to learn more about growing their own food. Classes will be listed on our events page with all relevant information on time, location, and content of the class. If you cannot make it to a class in person, don’t fret! We will be recording the classes and hosting them online so you can view them anytime.

Podcast/Radio Show: We strive to bring you all the information you could need or want regarding healthy and sustainable sources of food. DJ Adam and cohost Evan (Lanny) host a radio show every other Thursday on Radio Free Minturn. They also produce full-length podcast episodes, just check out the Podcast/Radio tab on the menu at the top of our website or click here to listen through our page!
