Madison Community Foundation makes $75K grant to Rooted

Madison Community Foundation has awarded Rooted, a Madison-based 501(c)(3) organization that grounds its work in collaborations in food, land, and learning, with a two-year, $75,000 Community Impact grant to help add development and communications staff to support the organization’s growth, and to position it to better meet its future needs.

Rooted’s 2023 outdoor programming resumes in late spring at Troy Kids’ Garden and Goodman Youth Farm. Thursday Nights at Troy will begin in June, adding an affordable dinner featuring local chefs to the weekly CSA market share pick-up. Although the Badger Rock Neighborhood Center will be closed this summer for construction to expand its space, the center will still offer virtual gardening and culinary workshops through its Facebook page.
