The Cedar Tree Foundation is excited to announce a new round of grantmaking for “Rooted in Justice” a funding program designed to help amplify youth voices and actions in the environmental and food justice movements by supporting community-based organizations and groups that specifically manage youth-led urban greening programs.  

Rooted in Justice is built on the recognition of the importance and undeniable right of every young person to have the ability to develop their own relationship with the environment, be it through growing food, spending time with nature, creating community green spaces, or becoming environmental stewards. Rooted in Justice also honors the power and possibilities that can arise when young people collectively work to be change-makers in their communities and environments.  

Rooted in Justice will support organizations, groups, collectives, and programs that work with young people between the ages of 12 to 20 in youth-led programming for communities or cultures which have historically and/or presently experience:

  • A lack of access to land or nature;

  • Agricultural oppression and/or neglect;

  • Food apartheid; and/or

  • Other forms of injustice based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics and disability.
