In March of 2019, Square Roots announced a strategic partnership with Gordon Food Service to bring fresh, local produce to cities across North America. Ultimately, this partnership will see Square Roots' high-tech farms built on or near Gordon Food Service locations across the continent, bringing premium-quality, hyper-local produce to customers all year round.
In addition to growing delicious, local food, Square Roots’ mission is to empower the next generation of leaders in urban farming. Through our Next-Gen Farmer Training Program, Square Roots trains future farmers in several aspects of local food systems—from seed to shelf. With every new Square Roots farm campus, the Next-Gen Farmer Training Program opens doors for even more young people to start exciting careers in the agriculture industry.
