The Ancestral Homelands Reciprocity Program is a community generated initiative to support and uplift the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe, the original peoples of this land, through their tribally guided 501(c)(3) nonprofit CHIRP (California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project). Our goal is to raise visibility and awareness so all who work or live here can come together to honor the past and grow the future.
Commerce through Connection
Our business practices are based on the same philosophy as our growing techniques. To provide for our community while creating a sustainable income that supports the farm and the farmers. Through experience and continued education we have focused on organic cut flowers, and acclimatized plant starts for sierra foothill gardeners. We strive to create a connection between local consumers and farmers.
The Root of Our Sweet Story
Before we even moved to the foothills to start Sweet Roots, we fell in love on an educational farm at UC Santa Cruz. Robbie was still teaching propagation in the program, (and I, Deena, was having a go at my first flower farm, a ¼ acre of strange decisions), when we started dreaming about farm names.
