    Proposal abstract:

    Taproot's activities and programs are designed to strengthen the innate bond between children and nature, increase children's awareness of their role in the natural system and foster a generation of people who enjoy, respect and care for the earth. This mission manifests in many different activities, but a number of these are focused on sustainable agriculture and sustainable living.
