What are YOUR superpowers?
We’re all in this together, so let’s harness and share our superpowers to live our best lives—and plan for a brighter future. Together, we can move the world toward equity and sustainability.
Hanging out with friends
Social interaction. Remember that? We are seeking people to start discussion circles with their friends. Could you start a circle just by asking your inner circle some basic questions?
Being Active, especially outdoors
We always need help in the garden, planting, sowing, tending, and harvesting. No handy or willing soul will be turned away!
Are you good at art, photography, or design? We always need help in the social media department, photography of our events, website development and so on.
teaching / speaking
Would you like to give a workshop or teach a lesson out in nature? We are seeking additional volunteers to help us provide education on topics such as: no-till farming, pollinators, climate change, water and more.
Introspection, pondering big questions, writing
We’d love to hear your ideas and find ways to collaborate.
performance / music / theater / Gatherings
Do you need a spacious spot to teach yoga or tai chi? Otherwise this garden makes a nice outing for daycares and parent clubs. And it is large enough to host larger events and performances. It’s a community space, we want it to be used—and loved.
Share your idea with us! We are nimble and open to innovation. We’d love to hear from you.
Teaching and Learning through Stories
We like to use stories (and even puppet shows!) to connect with our learners because stories are memorable, build familiarity, and allow learners to enter the story where they are, making them more open to learning. In addition, stories connect with many different ways of learning. Visual learners appreciate the mental pictures storytelling evokes. Auditory learners focus on the words and the storyteller’s voice. Kinesthetic learners remember the emotional connections and feelings from the story.
