Root over rock is a unique and naturally occurring event in nature. Tree roots attach to rock and continue to grow as the tree ages. In this workshop, we will attach a tree to a rock so the roots will take hold. A tree and a rock are provided; each student will leave the workshop having taken the first and most important step in the process.
A map will be sent with your confirmation.
