Jessica Harrison is the new executive director at Urban Roots, a farm and education center in Grand Rapids.
With 10 years of experience working to bring neighborhoods together to create change in the Grand Rapids area, she says she is ready to give much-needed attention to help the Madison neighborhood.
While being devoted to educating newcomers on how to grow their own food within the space they have, she says she is truly driven by providing neighbors access to fresh and colorful produce they can pick on their own to provide a healthy option to bring home.
Urban Roots’ mission is to cultivate healthy communities, and while the mission is simple, the current times are anything but that. Urban Roots encourages new partners who want to make a direct impact in the Madison neighborhood to donate. All funds donated to Urban Roots stay within their underserved neighborhood and volunteers are always welcomed.
