City Roots Community Land Trust Partnership

In late 2019, City Roots Community Land Trust and Taproot Collective entered into a partnership with a vision to create healthy, urban spaces that offer community-building opportunities, community education, youth employment opportunities, and access to nutritious food and affordable housing. All of which are key factors in improving the overall quality of life for members of our community. So far we have worked together on policy and advocacy work within the City of Rochester to push for changes that better our community. One goal we have now is to acquire land and property through the land trust, where Taproot could then create a space for events and programming with the community in mind. This partnership will allow Taproot to replicate and expand upon the work done at First Market Farm. Our hope is to continue to build upon this critical relationship with CRCLT to better serve our community well into the future.
