Roots Rising

Berkshire Botanical Garden joined forces in 2017 with Alchemy Initiative to create Roots Rising, an agriculture-based youth development program to build community and empower young people. Teens are paid to work on farms, in community gardens, farmers’ markets, and in local food pantries while participating in educational workshops on essential life skills. This provides an opportunity for teens to engage in meaningful work that contributes to a larger social good. This essential work is transformational, leaving youths feeling purposeful, capable, and connected.
