Southern Roots Student Growers
Southern Roots aims to bring growing practices to students. This organization was created to show students that growing food can be simple, fun, and lead to healthier living. The organization also aims to educate students on the importance of sustainable agriculture for the future of food.  What is learning in this organization will hopefully be applied later in life, after graduation of members.
