New Roots Farm

Many refugees and other New Americans come to the U.S. with backgrounds in agriculture. New Roots, a farmer training and food access initiative of the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City, provides these communities with a way to reconnect with land, grow culturally appropriate vegetables, and leverage their farming skills to earn supplemental income.

New Roots farmers earn income through produce sales to local schools, restaurants and Whole Foods Markets in Utah. They also operate three workplace CSA’s, delivering vegetable shares to employees of partnering businesses. New Roots founded and continues to operate and sell at the Sunnyvale Farmers Market and new for 2019, New Roots Farmers Market at Central Park.     

New Roots farmers grow a number of crops familiar to the American palate, including Beets, Carrots, Heirloom Slicing Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Spinach, Kale, Spring Mix, a variety of  Peppers, and Eggplant. Additionally, they grow speciality ethnic crops like African Eggplant, Aleppo Peppers, Amaranth Greens, Molokhia (Egyptian Spinach), Thai Chili Peppers, Tatume Squash, and long beans, among others.

All proceeds from sales go to the program’s 35+ farmers who originate from Sudan, Burma, Bhutan, Chad, Somalia, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The farmers collectively manage 15 acres of leased land spread throughout Salt Lake County.

Keep It Real Vegetables

Keep It Real Vegetables is an urban farming project located in Salt Lake City, Utah. I grow produce by hand on several small-scale gardens in the Salt Lake valley. I am dedicated to growing the freshest, highest quality produce available. I adhere strictly to organic growing practices, enriching my soils with massive quantities of compost, compost teas, cover crops, and organic amendments until the soil is sweet enough to deliver the flavor I am looking for.

        The quality of produce grown by these lovely people is second to none, it is the best Salt Lake City has to offer! I love knowing these two care for the earth and soil as much as they do for the vegetables they grow.

        Just made potato salad with your garlic scapes. OMG it is amazing!!!!!
        Thank you SO MUCH for introducing me to scapes. I have added them to a bunch of my old standby dishes as well as trying the things you suggested. I don’t know what I did before scapes. They are so good and add to everything I try them in!

        I’ve been following Tyler since the Sand Hill Farms days and his ever-expanding produce selection has–in terms of taste, nutrition and environmental stewardship–consistently been as good as it gets.

Green Urban Lunch Box

At the heart of the Green Urban Lunch Box is a 35-foot school bus that has been converted into a mobile greenhouse. Each season we utilize different techniques for growing food on the bus in order to show the endless possibilities of urban agriculture. We use the bus as an educational tool to teach children in our community about the scientific, agricultural, and social aspects of growing food in urban and suburban environments.

Our community farm and orchard is a plot of land in Layton that has been reclaimed and cultivated with the help of community members and volunteers. Owned by UDot, this 37-acre orchard had been abandoned for several years, and would still be sitting unused if we had not leased it. The trees produce fruit that we are able to harvest and distribute in food deserts. This incubator farm or farmer training program helps community members develop and maintain small farm plots, growing fresh produce for local markets. This year we had 13 new farmers on the property, working and learning what it take to start a farm bushiness.

This is my favourite place to shop! The prices are excellent; a lot of what I spend goes toward various charities, both in and out of the area. And there is the very definite bonus of the friendliness and caring of the owners.
