The Whispering Roots facility will grow healthy nutritious food such as salad greens, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries for distribution to the local community. In addition, classes will be offered in the areas of Controlled Environment Agriculture, Aquaculture/Aquaponics, Nutrition and Healthy Food Cooking/Preparation. Programming will also engage local students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.) disciplines.

We are extremely excited about the progress being made with the construction of our new 18,000sf education and food production headquarters in North Omaha!

Whispering Roots, Inc. is an award-winning, IRS certified 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to bringing healthy fresh food, nutrition education, innovative agriculture techniques and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) education to students and residents living in urban and rural socially and economically underserved communities.

We use Aquaculture, Hydroponics and Aquaponics (the combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics) to grow healthy food and expose children and families to great tasting nutritious food options through “hands-on” experiential learning and growing activities. Our approach educates students and the public in “next generation” farming techniques, hunger alleviation strategies and healthy food production.
