Founded in 2009, Radical Roots was originally based at a rented farm near Ballinadee, Bandon. Having completed courses in permaculture and organic market gardening they began growing and supplying salad and vegetables in the Bandon and Kinsale areas.
In 2014 John and Valerie moved to Leap and began setting up on their own 10 acre farm. Now Radical Roots produce fruit and vegetables for the West Cork community. Gradually increasing the amount of land they produce from, they are working on increasing soil and plant health in a sustainable way.
