  • Ruckus Roots is giving kids hands-on access to really cutting edge technology and giving them access to curricula that is genuinely relevant to them – and doing it all THROUGH art! No one else is doing this!”  – J. Sapin, Program Facilitator at Larchmont High


  • Ruckus Roots is doing AMAZING things with kids in classrooms that our schools systems simpy can’t do on their own. The RR team brings art education and skill building, environmentalism and activism, and critical lessons in team work and team building to youth in a totally accessible way that even teenagers love!” – R. Clemente, RuckusRoots Volunteer


  • The ideas and love behind all projects created by Ruckusroots are amazing. The ingenuity and care is astounding. I’ve learned so much at every event I’ve attend, while having a fun time doing so.” – Community Member, and Program Participant  


  • RuckusRoots is by far the best use of my donation $$ that I’ve found. Its combined focus on art and environmental education is unique and the quality of its programs unsurpassed. It is 100% properly aligned in this day and age, and in this current political environment where art education and the environment are both under unprecedented attack. Young people, our country and the world need our young to understand environmental issues, develop creatively and get involved and believe they can do something . If we want to foster creativity and creative solutions to our environmental problems, there is nothing better than RR out there. Period. Hats off to Christine and crew!” – Donor


  • When I think of how RuckusRoots operates, I think of three things:

1. Vision – RuckusRoots is focused on enriching the connection that students have with their world and their community, but most importantly, that connection is achieved by enriching the students connection with their own voice.

2. Implementation – In their projects, RuckusRoots always takes the time to explore and flesh out the goals of their projects. A spirit of fun and curiosity is key to their programs and that energy has to be invested at the beginning and carried all the way through the project.

3. Execution – None of the other stuff matters if the project isn’t completed, and RuckusRoots has a history of building teams that produce results.

It is a joy to work with them, from a perspective of the actual process and for the results they create.” – Artist Mentor
