Black Rootz is the first multigenerational Black-led growing project in the UK, where the older generation share their expertise on growing whilst also supporting youth engagement in their surrounding natural environment.
Black Rootz was established in Spring 2019. It’s our incubation project with its home at Wolves Lane Horticultural Centre. We recognise the need to ensure that Black and Minoritised growers reflect and represent the cultural diversity of the Borough of Haringey and the wider UK.
Fruit and vegetables fairly new to British shores such as sweet potatoes, exotic squashes and tomatillos can all be found at Wolves Lane, and passing down knowledge is vital to ensuring growing techniques survive.
