Urban Grown: Farms and Gardens Tour

New Roots’ partner program, Cultivate KC, is having their annual Urban Grown Tour this weekend! We are proud to have three graduate farm sites and our training farm site featured on the tour. It’s a great weekend for people in the community to see a variety of urban farms and gardens around Kansas City- to glean ideas for home gardens, learn what it takes to run a farming business in Kansas City, and to get inspired by neighbors that work together to feed their communities. It is a self-guided tour and the farmers will be present to answer questions and show you around. If you’ve been curious about what we do on a day-to-day basis, or you want to see some of the successful business ventures of our graduates, this is your chance! Take a look below to see which New Roots farmers to visit.
