What is Taproot?

Taproot is...

  • A Retreat for You

    Come relax and get away for a long weekend. Reconnect with yourself and your hopes and dreams for your family.

  • Homeschool Training

    Taproot is the place to learn all about the Waldorf methods and how to infuse your lessons with the lively arts.

  • Summer Camp

    We gather at a summer camp in Ohio for some summer fun - yummy snacktime, new friends, and walks in the woods.
