We're a creative, community food system meant to shift the paradigm of food apartheid.
There is a growing food ecosystem rising from the ancestral soil of the Mississippi Delta. Our lands are producing more foods that feel like home and more recipes reminiscent of the smell of steam escaping the familiar cast iron skillet covered with the crooked lid. With Rootswell, we’re building a community brand that will connect all the dots of that ecosystem and bring everyone aboard.
Under this brand, we’ll be able to shine a light on the work already being done, as well as source funding and other resources for small farms and businesses.
We’ll help locally-grown produce find its way into local kitchens, onto families’ tables, and demonstrate a healthier way to live fully and joyfully in the Delta.
