Our name: "Roots Farm" brought together a lot of past and present:  My 
past involvement with an urban ag project in Holyoke, MA called Nuestras 
Raices ("Our Roots"); our farming style which generally tries to utilize 
old-timey wisdom (back to our roots); the importance of the soil life 
--the medium for plant roots; even my partner's hair style (dreadlocks 
aka "roots").   Also, in our first years we also grew a lot of ground 
provisions -- root crops.  Name seemed a little funny at first, now 
feels good/right.  I like that it's earthy and short, easy to say, 
spell, remember. 

Best wishes to all,


Karen Sutherland
