Community Supported Education

Each family’s investment bolsters Take Root Forest School 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 School, thus enriching the lives of your children, yourselves, your community. Each day, every week – as the seasons change, Take Root Forest School will deliver a nature-based, holistic, fun, and engaging educational curriculum. 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 they are a part of.

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.
