rhizome /rīzōm/ [noun]: A horizontal, usually underground stem that often sends out roots and shoots from its nodes. Sometimes used by plants to store food.
A rhizome is a resource for new growth. It’s a store of potential, a store of energy, a way of growing, a way of connecting. Rhizomes make a plant resilient – harder to weed out. Rhizomes allow plants to weather the lean times. They can be uprooted, divided and replanted only to come back all the stronger. Bamboo rhizomes can break through brick walls. Couch grass spreads by rhizomes and refuses to be tamed.
Our aim is that Rhizome shares these characteristics and enables you to do the same:
- We are a resource for you and your organisation, for grassroots change.
- We can enable you to be resilient, persistent, effective, to create new projects and nurture existing one.
- We can support you to break through barriers, to always come back stronger…..
