Who We Are
The Root 66 Garden was founded, in 2009, as a project of the non-profit Restorative Justice Center in Upland.
With the valued help and collaboration of many volunteers and professionals, and after several years of development hurdles to overcome which have resulted in 14.38 acres of donated land with an old agriculture water well (with water rights!), we are finally ready to break ground and offer this garden to the community.
The Root 66 Garden will provide a vital boost to the health and well being of our local citizens, whether they are in particular need or just an average family who would like to grow their own produce and instill in their children the value gardening.
Located on historic Route 66 it will be showcase for what communities can do to create a more sustainable, green, and healthy environment that benefits all citizens.
