We carry out our mission through three core pillars:

FARMING

In partnership with community organizations, we operate sustainable urban farms on Chicago’s south side, using organic practices to grow culturally relevant fruits and vegetables with and for our community.

Over the last four years, we have produced over 40,000 pounds of produce, with 50% going to local food pantries and the other 50% sold to Chicagoans through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and weekly farm stand. Interested in learning more about our CSA program? Click here

COMMUNITY

Each farm that we operate builds community through shared gathering space, community events, and good food! 

EDUCATION

OUR STORY

Just Roots began in the Fall of 2017, when the co-founders began to work together with their community to expand access to sustainably grown food. In 2020, during the height of the pandemic, we partnered with Saint James Catholic Church & Food Pantry to convert a vacant lot into the Saint James Community Farm, a 1/2 acre fruit and vegetable farm located on Chicago’s south side.

In 2021, we partnered with Grace United Church of Christ and Good Vibes to establish It Takes A Village Community Farm, a 3 acre farm located in Sauk Village, IL.
