The Fields at Rootsprings’ Community Supported Retreat (CSR) program offers discounted rates for guests interested in purchasing a bulk of overnight stays. In exchange for discounted rates, CSR members invest in the long term health of Rootsprings by prepaying for stays at the beginning of the fiscal year. These prepaid stays ensure Rootsprings can meet basic operating responsibilities, while continuing to provide a place of respite and wellness for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, artist and activist communities.These one-year memberships are offered to anyone wishing to be with us in community as we honor our mission.
Memberships can be purchased as Full (20 night), Half (10 night), and Quarter (5 night) shares. Members can be individuals, groups or organizations. The Fields at Rootsprings invites you to become a CSR member and/or to purchase memberships to support free stays for Minnesota BIPOC in need of rest and healing (Solidarity Membership).
The CSR Program is temporarily paused due to the renovation of our Wellness Center. Enrollment is expected to open in April of 2024 for the 2024-2025 season.
Similar to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), where individuals or organizations purchase a share of produce for a season, annual Community Supported Retreat (CSR) members receive a “share” of overnight stays at Rootsprings. Like the CSA, the Community Supported Retreat (CSR) is a creative, alternative, local economic model rooted in reciprocity and connection. In its best form, the CSR model allows for a more direct and meaningful relationship to the land and to one another.
