Worcester Roots Project's youth team, Toxic Soil Busters Co-op, went to Boston on Sept. 23 to receive a national award. The Toxic Soil Busters Co-op created a 5 minute documentary film, “A Worcester EJ Story,” about one of the youth founders of Toxic Soil Busters. This award is accompanied by a $500 cash award, which will be invested back into the project to make more documentaries about environmental justice in Worcester.
Through the coordination of the Worcester Green Jobs Coalition and participation in numerous collaboratives for green jobs statewide and nationally, Worcester Roots is leading the way for Green Jobs Development in Worcester and beyond.
Through our youth team the Toxic Soil Busters and in partnership with the Worcester Lead Abatement Program, Worcester Roots Project offers lead soil testing and lead-safe landscaping services to Worcester residents.
