What We Do

Whispering Roots uses Aquaculture, Hydroponics and Urban Agriculture next-generation technology to teach children and under-served communities how to breed fish sustainably and grow vegetables affordably.

The increasing demand for our services made it necessary to respond to food accessibility and community development needs. Whispering Roots is providing immersive programs and hands-on educational opportunities.

Interesting Info

We currently work with over 20 schools in 8 counties in Nebraska including the OPS and Millard Public School districts.
At Whispering Roots, we believe no child should ever go hungry. Our programming addresses communities in North and South Omaha with food desserts..
Our soilless, controlled environment process allows us to grow crops year round by using 90% less water.
