How long does a series last?
Each series consists of 7 experiences over 6 weeks, meeting on the same weekday (either Tue or Wed). Each experience includes guided activities and conversation for a fun and intentional time together.
How long does each experience last?
Each week's experience is from 6pm - 9pm which the exception of the Meet & Greet, which is from 7pm - 9pm. You're always welcome to stay and hang out with the other ladies afterwards if you choose. All activities are included in the fee (including a RR guide who serves as facilitator, organizer, and game-master), but meals and drinks are additional for purchase. Please check the itinerary on the "Upcoming Series" page in your city to plan ahead.
When does the next series start?
Please check the dates for your city by choosing your city from the "Upcoming Series" dropdown in the main menu. We have new cohorts starting every two weeks. The experience series includes guided deep conversations, mini-golf, a scavenger hunt, an arcade night, happy hour games, and more.
When do I need to commit to the full series?
You need to commit to the full series at the end of the first experience. You attend the first experience for $20, where you’ll meet your gal group and RealRoots guide over wine. At the end of the first experience, you’ll need to commit to the full series for an additional $249 (for 7 total experiences). The fee includes all activities, and a RealRoots guide to plan and lead each experience. Meals are additional and available for purchase.
What happens if I need to miss an experience?
Although we encourage you do your best to attend each event from beginning to end, participants sometimes need to miss an event or two due to prior commitments or emergencies. If you do need to miss an event, please let your RealRoot guide know as soon as possible, so that we can update the headcount for the event.
Is it still worth it if I need to miss 1-2 experiences?
Yes! On average, ladies need to miss 1-2 experience of the 7, and the outcomes are just as good. However if you know you need to miss 3 or more experiences, then we'd recommend you join for another cohort instead to get the best experience.
How do you match women in gal groups?
We match women by life stage, approximate age, lifestyle, and proximity. We are very intentional about matching women together who have the potential for amazing connections. As you sign up for the first experience, we ask that you fill out a survey about who you are and we use the information you give us to match you into a the perfect gal group for you.
What if I want to switch gal groups?
At any point before the third experience, you can request to switch gal groups if you feel that your group isn’t a great fit. We will be happy to slot you into another group in the same or next available series.
How are you protecting against COVID?
We are monitoring and adhering to COVID guidelines in San Francisco County and Santa Clara County. Currently, masks are no longer required in these two counties, but we will continue to monitor and update based on local guidelines.
If you have tested positive for COVID or are experiencing symptoms, please notify your RealRoots guide and stay at home. We will transfer the unused portion of your fee to a later series so you can focus on recovering.
Who are these experiences for?
RealRoots hosts local experiences for women who are looking for meaningful new gal pals. Whether you're new to the area or you're just looking to expand your social circle, RealRoots is perfect for anyone with openness in their heart for meaningful new friendships.
