Our desire for this land is that it would flourish. We believe that to do this we must listen to the land—its history, watershed, topography, vegetation and creatures—on their own terms, asking questions and listening to what each have to communicate. We believe that this kind of relational listening will lead to healthy ecosystems.
We do not use any herbicides or pesticides or synthetic fertilizers on our farm. We are currently classified as organically grown and we are moving towards organic certification but we want to do even better than that. We seek to cultivate soil that is alive and well, utilize carbon sequestering practices, and increase the diversity of our plant friends and local creatures.
Mostly we love to see land, bodies and communities whole. We believe that the health of our bodies and communities is intricately connected to the health of our land.
We are a non-profit youth employment program focused on giving urban youth the chance to grow food and improve their job skills. Together we tend a quarter-acre worth of land from vacant lots in South-Central Wichita and offer the produce to our CSA. Organic.

Strong Roots Healthy Farming is a small, urban farm located in Valley Center Kansas that grows vegetables, fruits, and herbs. We believe in growing food as naturally as possible, so we do not use chemicals or artificial fertilizers. Instead we focus on making the plants as healthy as possible by mixing things like compost, fish emulsion, and worm castings into the soil. We rotate our crops to create a balance of nutrients in the soil each season. These are the things that are helping us regain the nourishment in our food, so that our families and our communities can build foundations that are physically and mentally sound.
