Helping individuals and communities grow together through sustainability education


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.
