Root Cause Gardening, Homesteading Support Organization Takes Root In Pittsburgh

On June 1, Root Cause, a full service garden and homesteading support organization based in Pittsburgh is now available to be a resource for planning, creating, maintaining, harvesting and preserving a sustainable food future, one community at a time. 
Founded in part by internationally known rapper, singer, activist and entrepreneur Kellee Maize, Root Cause is supported by a group of 20 other female entrepreneurs. 
After witnessing empty grocery store shelves due to the COVID-19 chaos, this group of women recognized food as not only a root cause of concern in the crisis but also as the key to changing many other issues that exist on the planet today. 
In addition to planning and maintaining edible gardens and homesteads for clients, Root Cause aims to mend the disconnect between people and the earth that our food comes from by providing support in a variety of related areas such as:
-- Greenhouse construction
-- Medicinal plant gardens
-- Chicken coop set-up and maintenance
-- Beehive set-up and maintenance
-- Indoor growing facilitation
-- Harvesting and canning
-- Custom raised garden beds
The founding members of Root Cause are experienced educators. For families who wish to create and maintain gardens or homesteads on their own, the group will provide teaching and resources so that children and adults can participate. 
Root Cause is prepared to provide training in planning, creating, maintaining, harvesting and preserving a sustainable permaculture food-bearing environment on their land.
Other founders include lifelong gardener, forager and yoga instructor Tami Gingrow; permaculture designer, herbalist, and tantra instructor Michelle Czolba; and massage therapist, energy healer, and community organizer Roxanne Banks-Williams
These four founders and the majority of other members are mothers who believe strongly that this knowledge of how to live sustainably must be passed down to the next generation as a means of survival and wellness.
Root Cause’s goal is to provide an open source of information as the organization grows so that the team can expand and empower other communities across the globe to follow suit.
