About Us

The goal of Reeds & Roots is to promote sustainable living in the broader Northeast Ohio region by teaching earth-friendly living skills with one another in a joyful, healthy atmosphere.

An all-volunteer grassroots workforce, we are a diverse community of learners and doers grounded in values of resilience, anti-oppression, and local adaptation. We are nurturing mutual relationships and adaptive earthskills. We are building the communities we want to live in as we weather environmental and societal systems collapse.

We are committed to centering historically marginalized voices, practices, and knowledge bases as we decolonize our relationships with the natural world and each other.  We recognize the importance of polycultures not only in plant communities, but in people communities, too!

We promote skills for the betterment of the earth and its people for all settings (urban, suburban, small town, and rural) for Black, Indigenous, White, and People of Color; and from a variety of practices and multiple cultures.

Our Commitment to Anti-Racism, Anti-Oppression, and Multiculturalism

The organizers of Reeds & Roots Skillshares are committed to maintaining an inclusive, welcoming community for all participants. We are taking intentional steps to include Black, Indigenous and other People of Color in leadership, and setting goals to ensure a diversity of workshop presenters.

The organizers design Reeds and Roots events to create a culture of inclusion and belonging. We ask that participants commit to a Community Care Agreement, and bring any concerns to event organizers.
