The RootStock method is to recreate the life enabling powers of the Earth, Sun, and Moon in the classroom.
Life on Earth is sustained by the effects of the Sun's energy on the Earth's wheel of waters, including ocean currents, tides; atmosphere, winds and clouds; rain and the cycling back to the source through watershed and the evapo-transpiration of water that breathes moisture in and out of all living things. In these relationships are found the basis of all knowledge, all truth, every science and the future of all living beings.
The RootStock Foundation provides access through recirculating water labs to every aspect of that life, including the Earth's relationship through wind and tides to their sources in the Sun and Moon. Besides the labs, multimedia study aids are developed in consultation with teachers so they can expand dimensions of life that are too small to see and bring to human scale phenomena that is too large to be contained in the classroom.
Our goal is to awaken children's senses to nature, to bring alive the study of truths that would, otherwise be limited to the 2-dimensional pages in text books.
