Light Root Community Farm is a working farm with a social mission to cultivate a strong community and vibrant social fabric around the farm. The farms of the future need to be held as valued community assets, serving as a foundation for local food production, land and nature preservation, and cultural regeneration and education. Farms can provide a living sanctuary for the community to connect to their food source, the plants, the animals and the local ecology of the land .

LEAF (Living Earth Agriculture Foundation) was created to bring the Culture back into Agriculture and reconnect people with the land and nature through participating in our community outreach offerings on the farm.

Agriculture is rooted in Nature and true Culture needs to be rooted in Agriculture. ~ Wendell Berry
