Taproot is written by and for people striving to live more fully and to dig more deeply. Each ad-free issue of Taproot features prose, poetry, photography, art, crafts, and recipes, all serving as an exploration and documentation of the spirit of these times. Issue 33 focuses on our desire to Explore! Learn the art of nature-walk journaling; sew a hat for a sunny day outside; make meringues; and use preserves in cooking. A summer-weight knitted shawl and a lightweight smock pattern make this issue fodder for summer adventures!
