BUGs ROC is a BIPOC growing community for those who want to create sustainability and self-sufficiency in our neighborhoods. We are working to connect people to the land, the resources, and to each other, to grow the sustainable food system we need. By addressing the trauma that exists between us and the land and learning ways to heal both ourselves and the land we can grow the future we all deserve.
