What We Do
Revive the Roots is a non-profit organization in Smithfield, Rhode Island. Our mission is to create ecologically regenerative and dynamic social spaces through the education and practice of permaculture.
By working with students and faculty at local schools, we have planted edible forest gardens and annual vegetable gardens throughout northern Rhode Island. At our public grounds, Mowry Commons, we provide space for people to grow their own food.Read More
Explore the great outdoors on the Mowry state park trails located on our reserve. We have areas for kayaking in Stump Pond and the Woonasquatucket river, as well as viewing and seating areas to take a break from hiking, have a picnic, or just relax.Read More
Concerts, plays, and all other kinds of celebrations and events are hosted on our beautiful 23 acre reserve all the time. Check our events section frequently to stay informed.Read More
Be part of making community space for everyone. Every little bit helps! Thank you for your continued support.
Our future depends on the actions we take now. Reduce, reuse, recycle. Your actions can make a difference.
