BIKE - DRIVE - WALK
Get outside and discover local food and farms with
10 self-guided tours.
Each tour includes interactive audio & visuals, all focused on our food, farms & natural surroundings!
New routes will be revealed throughout the summer, with opportunities for unique on-farm activities.
Gain an understanding of the nuance embedded in what we eat -- from the challenging history of the roots of our food, the location of our grocery stores, or the connections between backyard restoration efforts and vegetable production.
Routes to Roots will culminate with a virtual celebration in September.
Participate in fun summer activities that support local farmers and bring fresh, local food to families.
