UMD ROOTS Africa

MISSION

ROOTS is here to make agriculture more appealing to young entrepreneurs both at the University of Maryland and globally. We believe creating a common international platform where youth can share agricultural ideologies, discuss challenges faced in this field, and work towards finding possible solutions to these issues without any boundaries will be a great starting point towards making agriculture fun and more inclusive for youth. Founded by AGNR students Cedric Nwafors and Mandela Jones, ROOTS Africa was established in 2017.
