The following notes and excerpts are from parents whose children have participated in Earthroots classes from 2004 to the present. If you would like to speak with a parent from our Weekly Homeschool Program, Afternoon Adventures, Summer Camp, or Toddlers in the Garden classes, please let me know.
P.S. This link takes you a yelp review of our Toddlers in the Garden class.

I believe the program [Homeschool Field Program] is teaching Tommy to be a caring and responsible individual to all living things and to do his part in keeping our environment clean.

I really liked the discovering of new places and the fact that Liam had positive outdoor experiences relating to nature and the interaction with other children. I particularly like … Jodi’s positive influence on the entire program. It’s been a pleasure to observe and be a part of.

Just wanted to say thank you for the Afternoon Adventures class. My son really enjoyed the different experiences he had over the session and I’m happy that he had an opportunity to do all the neat things he did.
I also wanted to say that I appreciated the way that you handled behavior issues over
the weeks whenever he was difficult or challenging. Not everyone has the
patience or the skill. Some get overwhelmed by him. But you were able to
keep your calm and maintain control of the situation.
You’re doing a great job and I wish you well.

I really like all of the concepts, especially the “invisible classroom,” and the idea of a rich, sensory educational environment. I’m so happy that Earthroots provides that for my girls.

Thanks for a great field trip! The girls said it was the best field trip ever and they can’t wait to do it again. Noelle even wants to build a beach in our backyard!

…thank you for providing my son such a wonderful experience today. He could not stop talking about what a delightful place the garden was as well as all the cool things you guys talked about. While we were there he showed me the worm compost, told me more about the fairies that live at the garden, about the luscious carrots you guys picked…”Mom, they were the best carrots I’ve ever had!!!”. Thank you for sharing your passion with my son, and for touching his soul in such a kind way. Needless to say, he can’t wait to come to the next class.
