Because the early years of parenting are often a huge shift in identity, we work to provide activities that support your family’s social growth and development. We are especially enamored with fueling the development of new traditions or new ways of experiencing old traditions. The best way to stay in the loop about community activities, impromptu flock gatherings and family-friendly events is to follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
The philosophy behind our beloved Birth Roots events.
Like most small nonprofits, we are eager to return to the pre-pandemic freedom of hosting in-person events. To be notified of the return of Birth Roots’ community events, please join our mailing list.
Little Monsters’ Ball
Join Birth Roots for some teeny-weeny-Halloween fun! Bring your baby (0-36 months) in costume for a baby-oriented costume party & photo booth.
Activity stations carefully selected by our sponsors for the youngest among us, as well as a variety of local treats and goodies for the grown ups. There won’t be any scary costumes and no one will give your two year old a lollipop! Grandparents are invited, what better way to introduce them to this thing we call #communitysupportedparenting!
Join Birth Roots for a Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio, and RIE inspired festival of spring, love, and hidden folk! Designed for the youngest among us and their parents and grandparents.
This event is thoughtfully designed for the 0-36 month olds in the community. Intentionally curated exploration stations for these curious little ones makes it an adventure. Bring home inspiration and ideas for home.
Little Pollinator Parade
The Pollinator Parade brings attention to the critically low numbers of Monarch butterfly and the plight of many pollinator species. Educational activities at our annual Pollinator Parade emphasize the steps we can take to help rescue the disappearing monarch.
Brought to you by Birth Roots, in partnership with the Maine Audubon, this beloved event concludes with a family picnic on the beautiful grounds of Gilsland Farm in Falmouth, Maine.
Tickets for 2022 Pollinator Parade go on sale Tues, April 12th at 12pm noon, purchase them here.
Family Photo Booth
The family landscape changes so dramatically throughout the early years of parenting. While we take a million photos in the first few years, there is something special about the professional photo booth.
Birth Roots is proud to partner with emilie inc. photography to capture the magic of the moment by participating in the sweet and silly fundraiser for Birth Roots.
Tickets for our June 2, 2022 event go on sale at NOON on May 5th: ticket link.
Baby Booty Resale Event
Our Baby Booty Resale Fundraiser collects donations of baby & children’s clothes, toys, books and equipment, cloth diapers and wraps, slings/carriers/backpacks, strollers, etc. in sizes newborn to 5T in gently-used, resale-able condition.
“A Booty isn’t just a fundraiser, it is Birth Roots’ “flocks” handing loved and cherished things on to the next “flock.” I just imagine that each item is imbued with best wishes and good mojo – – the Birth Roots’ version of pixie dust.”
