Conflict is natural, and can happen even in the most well organized garden group or with the best of friends. How can we hold space for and resolve conflict within our groups? In these monthly sessions, mediators Skye Roper-Moses and Michelle Jackson will facilitate discussion circles for community gardeners to bring their challenges to the group and collectively generate solutions. The facilitators will model skills for holding space that gardeners can bring back to their own groups to begin to develop a practice for addressing and transforming conflict in the garden.

How this series works:

This participatory virtual series begins with a one-hour orientation on September 9, from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., that we ask everyone to attend. After orientation, there will be three two-hour monthly sessions (dates: 9/23, 10/21, 11/18). You can attend one, two, or all three of these sessions.

Please attend the one-hour orientation on September 9, where you will meet the facilitators, suggest topics for exploration, and learn more about the sessions’ format. Please come to the orientation with ideas and specific issues that you would like to troubleshoot.

This webinar will be interactive and we encourage everyone's participation. We will not be recording.
