This year, construction on our new EcoJustice Literacy Classroom began!
Youth Employment is the cornerstone of Radix’s programming. Our youth give us the labor force needed to transform community spaces, impact food access, and educate our neighbors. Our young cohort becomes tomorrow’s environmental leaders. Youth spend the first half of their shift helping out with Radix’s regenerative agriculture programs and the second half participating in literacy and advocacy lessons. This dual focus helps us train well-rounded workers capable of putting the why to the how when tackling environmental challenges.
Community Connections drive our decisions at Radix. Collaboration magnifies the impact of partnering organizations and provides opportunities to lift up less-heard voices.
We upgraded our shiitake mushroom output this year!
The Workforce Development Institute provided Radix with much-needed funds to upgrade our season extension capabilities! We want to make sure everyone is aware that vegetables can be grown year round in New York!
This was our second year of producing maple syrup from trees in Albany’s Lincoln Park!
Due to the changed pace of life caused by the pandemic shutdown, we had some unexpected wild visitors including a wild turkey, hawks, deer, and ducks!
Social distance and masks were central to our ability to keep volunteers safe while working at our many sites within the community.
Farewell 2020! We have learned an incredible amount about resilience, community, and flexibility this year and look forward to applying these lessons to 2021!
