In order to be placed on a waitlist or to enroll with the Take Root Forest Learning Community for the Forest Year (September-June), Enrollment Costs must be paid in advance. These costs are due once a Forest Year and allow the classes to be scheduled and planned, rosters to be set, and supplies ordered. Enrollment Costs are not part of the Class Costs and are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Once you have reviewed the costs on this page, contact us to learn more and to discuss options, needs and availability. The director will set up a time for you to tour the location best suited to you. If you are ready to join, sends us an email and we will call you to discuss the next steps!

Community Supported Education

Each family’s investment bolsters the Take Root Forest Learning Community and its commitment to revolutionizing education.

Community Supported Agriculture is a practice where the community pledges support to a farm by investing in shares before each growing season. The invested money allows the farm to do the work to grow the food. Once the harvest comes in, the farm re-distributes the shares as boxes of food.

The idea of Community Supported Education is similar…we invite you to invest in Take Root Forest Learning Community, thus enriching the lives of your children, yourselves, your community. Each day, every week – as the seasons change, Take Root will deliver nature-based, holistic, fun, and engaging educational classes. Your children will grow, feeling a strong sense of self and community, a better understanding of their surroundings, while developing a natural respect for the world.

Each of you is invited to support the community by rounding up and adding more to your Enrollment Costs or donating separately to the Take Root Family Support Fund, allowing a diversity of children to attend the program.

Enrich your children, yourself, your family & community. Support innovative and holistic education – participate in our programs and TAKE ROOT…PLANT THE SEEDS.
