Rooted Resources

By sharing the workings of vital initiatives, the Rooted Resources series provides a clearer vision of what “democratizing wealth, communities, and work” means, refracted through the living experience and the emerging projects of the people who are making change today. This series grows out of the Rooted Resources Festival (May 12-15, 2022).
