The Rooted Emergence Project’s mission is to address socioeconomic disparities, the growing effects of climate change, food insecurity, and reverberating effects like mental and psychological disorders affecting our youth in underserved communities.
New Yorkers aged 12-17 have depression.
1 in 6
youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year.
US children lived in food-insecure households in 2019.
We partner with organizations throughout New York City to teach food production and agricultural-based coping methods to underserved and at-risk communities.
