[Monthly on Wednesdays March 22 - November 15 with a summer break]
For people who want to discover how whiteness has shaped them and practice new cognitive, emotional, and bodily/somatic patterns. Why this series? Land stewardship in the US has a deep history of racism, and yet land offers resources for resilience and healing from racism. As farm and food system workers and educators connected to land, we have a unique responsibility and opportunity to deeply engage in this healing work. Through this series, you're invited to take a step back from analysis and cognitive learning to shift personal patterns in your body and heart. Facilitators will share practices to help us focus on abundance, resilience, interdependence, and humility: qualities we need to build authentic, trusting relationships with people of all identities. Hosted by the Farm-Based Education Network in partnership with the School Garden Support Organization Network, your peers in the workshop will be farmers, staff at food, farm, and agriculture organizations and farm-based educators. Register by 3/20/23.
