Renewed Roots Initiative

RRI is a 501(c)3 non for profit. All contributions to RRI are tax deductible.

Renewed Roots Initiative is a volunteer-based nonprofit microfarm dedicated to increasing access to heirloom-quality, locally-sourced, and sustainably-grown foods to those that need it most.

In addition to distributing high-quality produce to food pantries, markets, and restaurants, we provide educational programs, sponsor initiatives, and organize community events to advance our three principles: cultivating food equity, providing interactive education, and promoting environmental stewardship.


We are proud to call Aurora, Illinois home.
