Earthroots grew out of a community need for environmentally progressive & conscious, enriching, outdoor, hands-on nature connection classes for children and adults in Orange County, California. Co-created in 2005 by a small, dedicated group of homeschool families and guided by Jodi Levine, we now serves many families, schools and colleges in Southern California each season.

Earthroots is incorporated as a 501(c) 3 and welcomes leads on applicable grants to enhance our programs and outreach.
