If you’re looking for gardening tips, you're in the wrong place! But if you’re curious about your own roots - like your family history, culture, and traditions - we’d love to help you discover, document, and celebrate what makes your family unique. Root & Seed also has a Conversation Tool that will help you capture your family stories so that you will have them for safe keeping, reflection, and sharing.
Capture precious stories effortlessly for generations to come.
Our conversation cards help you collect everything from family stories and traditions to recipes and more – regardless of your background.
Helping families preserve their own heritage.
The game-like nature of the questions breaks down barriers and makes it easier to have more informed conversations. Themes like Culture, Traditions, Celebrations, and Food help you learn something you never knew you didn't know.
Record stories in real-time that will last a lifetime.
Each question card includes a unique QR code that links to a complimentary companion tool. Access "dig deeper questions" to keep the conversation flowing. Record your loved one’s voice with images and notes for safekeeping. Then, you and your family can listen to the stories whenever you’d like.
