The Root Fellowship

The ROOT Fellowship occurs every Fall, Spring, and Summer. ROOT Fellows are key to the Farmlink Project community and this fellowship is central to our organization’s culture, identity, and work. During their time at Farmlink’s ROOT fellowship, fellows will serve as legitimate contributors within their respective teams while simultaneously becoming empowered to plan for the future of The Farmlink Project and the food/waste space at large. Throughout the fellowship, we will collectively work towards an inclusive, diverse, and solution-oriented internal culture and a hunger-free future. ROOT fellows are the force that runs Farmlink!
