2021 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This project will transform underutilized spaces into active community farms which act as hubs for social interaction, sustainable food production, educational opportunities and community events for a diverse group of program participants.
The ReGen Roots Community Farms program provides free land and resources to refugees from Zambia, Burundi and Honduras so they can grow healthy food for their families. In 2021, the organization expanded the land offerings from one acre to two (due in large part to the AARP funding). The only requirement of the farmers is that 10 percent of their peak harvest be donated to the Nashua Children's Home or the Nashua Soup Kitchen.
