Rooting for Winter

Rooting for winter campaign with pictures of carrot, beets, and potatoes

Can you DIG it!?!

You can Root for Winter when you serve and celebrate carrots, potatoes, turnips and other seasonal roots vegetables from local CT farms! Let us help you connect to find local seasonal roots. Schools and Farms can get individual support, educational materials, and big bragging rights to feature some CT grown roots. 

 

We are here to support you. One this page you will  find resources to connect with farms, easy recipes for a menu item or taste test, order free materials and how to share your story. Reach out directly to shannon.raider@uconn.edu with questions, ideas and to for additional support!
