Meet the Creator.
Hi, I'm Allyson. I live on a 1/2 acre in the suburbs with my husband, two children (aka: the sprouts), our family dog (Maple), and a colony of chickens. We've lost count of how many!
Our family is on a journey to reclaim a simpler life. Join us as we venture down the path of independence and resilience, uncovering the tried-and-true practices of generations passed.
Our paths will look different, but our hearts the same. Together we are... The Rooted Folk.
"Taking Root" - the 2023 Challenge.
This monthly challenge was designed to bridge the gap between the past and the present. Between traditional practices our families once knew and the consumerist imperatives we face today.
In the city, in the suburbs, in rural areas with acres of land - wherever you are, we invite you to join us as we make simple changes in our homes to build a newfound self-reliance.
Make your own creative, high-quality gifts for your friends and family to lower your waste and simplify all things "gift" this holiday season.
