Indigenous Roots Forever is a tribal community micro-farming program developed by the Indigenous People’s Network of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and fiscally sponsored by the Pocasset Pokanoket Land Trust, a tribal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The program is led by Rocky Johnson, a Narragansett Indian. It serves marginalized BIPOC communities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut by teaching people how to grow their own medicine through herbs, fruits and vegetables. Our farming techniques are traditional Native American and we never use chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We provide hands-on training, but we also plant and harvest fresh foods for those who are incapable of gardening, such as the elderly and the disabled.
At this time Rocky is appreciative of donations that allow him to purchase supplies for his gardens. Donations will also begin paying him for the time that he puts into the program.
This program runs from April through October every year.
