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:

CMC Community Garden – This Summer, New Roots CO will oversee and manage the community garden located at the CMC campus in Edwards. Follow the link for more details and sign-up information.

Garden Guardians– Check out our latest volunteer opportunity to put locally grown food into the Eagle County community. We’re recruiting folks to tend community garden plots across Eagle County. All harvested produce will be donated to The Community Market and given back to locals for FREE. 

Podcast/Radio Show – We strive to bring you all the information you could need or want regarding all things sustainability and food. DJ Adam and 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!
