Roots in the Ground CSA was the recipient of the Community award, accepted by founder Julie Wolfgram, whose tears acknowledged her deep appreciation for the award, as well as her dedication to her mission.


This CSA embodies the message that access to food is a right, not a privilege, as Julie is waging a war on poverty.  Roots in the Ground is innovative with regard to its “pay what you can” policy and its acknowledgment that Dane County's low-income residents deserve access to fresh food regardless of income.


Julie Wolfgram is an entrepreneur with a heart whose work on the local level has improved the lives of those whom she serves, as well as the community at large.
