Virtual ROOTS Weekend

Southern Soil: Collective Learning in Harmony with the Land
Friday May 14-Sunday, May 16, 2021

Save the Date! We will be holding our first-ever VIRTUAL ROOTS Weekend, Friday, May 14-Sunday, May 16. Alternate ROOTS’ 2021 theme is Southern Soil: Collective Liberation in Harmony with the Land, and this ROOTS Weekend will set us off on that journey with a focus on Collective Learning. Over the three-day gathering we’ll deepen our relationship to the history of the land, stewardship, and the artistic/organizing practices that help us live in harmony with the land we are on.

Registration for ROOTS Weekend opens in mid-April! We hope you’ll join us as we deepen our analysis of where we are and where we want to be.
