Grass Roots Enrichment and Wellness Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that offers unique enrichment and wellness opportunities for children, teens and adults of all ages.
We live up to our Grass Roots name by emphasizing a love of our planet, natural health and wellness, and giving our children the enrichment opportunities to be their best selves today, and make a better world tomorrow.
When I started Grass Roots I had envisioned it as a new learning movement.
I wanted to create a space that I dreamed as a child existed outside of formal education.
A place for kids and adults who never quite fit in or learned well through standardized ways.
A place where your intellect and creativity was challenged and fostered.
A place where love, empathy, sympathy and compassion was equally as important in navigating through life as a history exam.
A place you actually got your hands dirty.
A place that held class outdoors.
A place where talk and laughter gets as much time and respect as the project at hand.
A place where you felt safe to fail so you had courage to try again.
A place so beautiful and magical the space itself sparked innovation.
Not a place that replaced standard education but, a space that helps create a balance in learning.
Now, five years later that vision is a reality.
Grass Roots welcomes you to become a part of this movement.
