What We Do

Whispering Roots uses Aquaculture, Hydroponics and Urban Agriculture next-generation technology to teach children and marginalized communities how to breed fish sustainably and grow vegetables affordably, and prepare health food through our Culinary programming.

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. Since COVID19, we started food delivery to high risk or marginalized communities. We have also transitioned our in classroom lessons into an online environment, offering bilingual cooking and gardening classes in English and Spanish. Be sure to visit Whispering Roots TV on YouTube.
