WHAT WE DO

Shifting the paradigm of landscaping.

Roots Down is dedicated to growing more beautiful, sustainable, and abundant communities by training the next generation of land stewards. Here's how we do it!
Education
EDUCATION

Imagining a greener world, together.

Growing Fruitful Communities takes a village, that's why we focus on people first. Through a host of live and online educational events, we bring together eco-conscious people around the shared goal of better public spaces.
Roots Down Roadshow

Our cornerstone workshop shows HOA's, property managers, landscapers, and homeowners how to bring the beauty, abundance, and sustainability of Productive Urban Landscapes to their projects, properties, and homes.

Lunch and learn seminars

For specific industry verticals, we also offer lunch and learn seminars where we discuss the specific challenges and needs within an industry context. We currently offer seminars for developers, property managers, HOA's, and local government.

Hands-on learning

We've also developed a series of hands-on learning events that focus on the fiscal, social, and environmental benefits of ecological landscaping. Attendees not only learn about the landscapes, but what makes them so beneficial.

The Roots Down app

The Roots Down app is where all our clients go to complete certification, connect with others, and find our growing catalog of continuing education modules. Get educated, connect to potential clients, and find your tribe in the Roots Down app!
