Making Roots is a sustainability thinkspace. Developed on the idea that even for a conservationist, it is unclear what exactly "sustainable" choices are. We wanted to create a space that isn't specialised or technical, that anybody can read to get clued up on science and environmental issues. It's a positive space, without judgement to get inspired to make small changes to better ourselves and the planet. We cover a broad range of issues, from health, food to science and conservation. Lifestyle is a multifaceted topic- with wide ranging impacts. 

I have been writing for Making Roots on a constant basis as a blog for over three years. My partner Lee Hankinson, is currently our senior science advisor and co-editor, who directs and guides us on important topics. We live and love eco life and are passionate about making this accessible for all.

I have developed the website entirely myself, with some free advice from a website developer. We have writers, who contribute on a voluntary basis.

We want to continue to provide cutting edge research from science, sustainability and conservation to our ever increasing readership. I work 90 hour weeks to maintain social media, website design and development, writing, research and outreach as just the start of important tasks.

But we want to grow! There is a thirst for understanding into the problems faced on the planet. I am full time co-editor at Making Roots as a voluntary role, and Lee donates all of his free time to this cause, and it gives us the most fulfilling, exciting and engaging workplace. But this is not sustainable practice! There is a huge demand for more from Making Roots. 

We need finical support to keep Making Roots growing.  We are no longer a blog, but a growing community under demand for up to date science.

We want to be able to showcase important conservation projects, and to be able to pay them a small fee to take time out from their work to write about themselves, to educate a wider community.

We want to pay website developers to help keep the website up to scratch, functioning for different browsers, and up to date with recent data changes. We want to be able to pay for the associated website hosting costs, that have so far been covered entirely by myself.

With your help, we can continue to build Making Roots into a positive, educational and fun space to make sustainability accessible!
