Earthroots is a non-profit education organization, offering creative learning environments that nurture the whole person and their connection with the natural world.
We offer classes year round for toddlers, homeschoolers, teens, adults, private and public schools and summer camps. Local organic farms, gardens, wilderness parks, green kitchens, beaches, creeks are our outdoor classrooms. This school is an exploration of our natural world and extends into our connection with all things. Orange County programs meet at new locations each week, ranging from San Clemente to Huntington Beach and east into the Santa Ana Mountains. Each year, we also travel out of our region for family camping trips & adventure.

We build trust and confidence through adventurous challenges and by enjoying the peaceful abundance of the natural world. Some of our favorite seasonal projects include starting, growing and eating from our garden; harvesting acorns, making traditional Native American instruments and crafts; weaving with natural fibers; identifying marine tidepool creatures; milking goats, making goat milk ice cream; identifying and eating edible plants in our neighborhoods and local wilderness areas; following and identifying animal tracks; learning bird calls; building with natural materials, creating a journal documenting our discoveries; and finding places to be quiet in nature.
We adapt our classes to the interests of our students and allow the spontaneity of the day to guide us. Small groups allow for a deeper and more powerful experiences in nature. For the children’s classes, parents are welcome to participate or to drop off. In most situations, younger siblings may accompany parents during class.
