Our Work

The Roots Foundation launched in 2015 with two pilot projects: an expansion of the Vance Peace garden into a “green schoolyard”  at Vance Elementary School of Ecology in West Asheville and “VEG!” a ½ acre experiential learning garden serving preschool children at Verner Center for Early Learning in Swannanoa, NC.

Our team is working with these school communities and partner organizations to build thriving gardens that are a central feature of learning at the schools, as well as sources of healthy food and community building. These collaborative projects are an opportunity to explore the exciting possibilities of an educational, interactive, and abundant schoolyard.
