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 39, Tides, sails into the wild blue yonder of summer. Projects feature a knitted shawl and a cropped pullover in summer blues. An essay on rethinking the empty-nest, as well as seaweed-based recipes both for eating and body care, plus recipes for using all those sourdough starters make this issue as cool as a summer breeze!
