Growing Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies: now virtually

Urban Roots is a Reno-based nonprofit that strives to change the way children eat and learn through garden-based education.

Our Vision

Urban Roots is founded on the idea that the garden is a powerful tool for improving academic instruction, developing healthy habits, and sowing a respect for the environment. In order to realize our mission of growing healthy minds, bodies, and communities, we provide school and garden-based opportunities for teachers, students, families, and partnering organizations.
