About the Project Name
The Rhyze Project is inspired by the rhizome, a root system that some plants use to grow. While the roots of most plants generally point downward, the rhizome grows horizontally underground. The rhizome sends shoots up from its nodes, growing what appear to be many separate plants. These seemingly unrelated individual plants are actually all connected through a system that’s not immediate visible to the eye. Rhizomes are resilient and determined: just like women. We know you’ll agree that this metaphor is a fitting description of the mission and vision for The Rhyze Project.
