Review for Rooted, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Board member for many years. Started by one communty member of inexhaustible energy who had/has a vision for the use of a very long and very wide area in the central city of Madison, Wisconsin. What bettter use than a community park with amenities and attractions for all ages and abilities. The planning has taken years and still isn't a reality but focus of the park is now a project of the city of Madison. The board and staff have moved to a new emphasis and name. We are now called the Center for Resilient Cities. Our current project is the development and building of a new school in conjunction with the Madison Metropolitan School District. The of the curriculum is education and production of sustainable agriculture. This has included the design and development of a new public school with active involvement of the surrounding community in defining the design of the school as well as the development of the curriculum.
