Nuestras Raices

For over 25 years, Nuestras Raíces has operated an urban farm in Holyoke, Massachusetts, called La Finca, a place where culture, ecology, and the idea of equitable economy intersect. Many people in this community are of Puerto Rican and Latinx heritage, and many are working in the farming and food sector. Nuestras Raíces is deepening its connections with the Holyoke immigrant community while focusing on culture and health. It is expanding its cultural food education program to bring more children’s groups to La Finca, investing in its network of community gardens, and growing its cultural celebration series. Nuestras Raices encourages community members to share their life experiences, expertise, and leadership to build a food system that features Taino food products, cuisine, and seeds, all of which are cultural keys for Puerto Rican and Latinx people.
