Conflict Transformation Circle for Community Gardeners

Wednesday, August 17, 2022

6:00 p.m.7:30 p.m.

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?

Please RSVP here to receive the Zoom link.

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.

This will be a confidential space that is not recorded. Conflict Transformation Circles is designed as a series but it is not necessary to attend all the sessions. Drop-ins are welcome!
