We have converted one acre of bare agricultural land into a productive, no-dig, market garden. We produce low-impact, locally grown, healthy food for our community, growing without using chemicals in ways which encourage biodiversity and soil health. We do this with our community, offering volunteering and learning opportunities and hosting activities and events.
We are a Community Interest Company, meaning that every penny we earn goes into helping us to make the world a better place. We believe passionately that locally grown veg that are good for us and for the planet should be affordable, but the reality is that in our current financial system this simply isn’t the case, and it’s very tricky for projects like ours to make ends meet.
If like us you share a vision of a world where everyone can eat the healthiest seasonal local veg, please consider making a donation to support our work.
You can choose whether you donate to support our work overall, or your money can directly buy veg for someone who can’t afford them.
Every penny really does make a difference.
At Community Roots, our vision is to be the change the world needs; modelling a sustainable way of connecting nature, community and food. This means that as well as selling veg bags, we run courses and events to help spread the word around regenerative agriculture, social inclusion and food equality.
If you would like to keep up to date with what we’re up to and hear about events and courses please subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media.

Success with Funding
While our goal is to become financially self-sufficient, funding has been essential to the growth of Roots. We are incredibly grateful to all the organisations that have supported us so far, including South West Water (who paid for us to install a rainwater harvesting system), Cornwall Community Foundation and The National Lottery (supporting us to us grow and develop our project), St Agnes Parish Council (who have provided vital equipment), and the Shared Prosperity Fund (which has funded plans for a new building). We also ran a hugely successful Crowdfunder which was matched by money from Cornwall Council which paid for a polytunnel and a wind-break fence to project it.
