A holistic approach to address health and social issues such as childhood obesity, diabetes, urban agriculture, and food equity
"Conscious community honors the individuals as well as the group, knowing that the well-being of one cannot be bought at the expense of the other. It requires strong, individuals who feel secure enough to speak
truthfully, to listen to the truths of others, and to attune to the needs of the whole."
~Carolyn R. Schaffer & Kristin Anundsen,
Creating Community Anywhere: Finding Support and Connection in a Fragmented World
It starts with YOU -
your voice matters
We want to hear from you. What is working for you (and NOT working for you) in your community food & nutrition landscape? How can we work together to create a sustainable and nourishing environment for you and your constituents?
Real change starts at home
What are the obstacles and opportunities in your environment that either supports or discourages healthy lifestyle choices? How can we make it more accessible for families to work more collaboratively together to address core issues related to health and nutrition?
It takes a village - and a whole lot of love
The community is nothing more than a bigger family unit made up of smaller families and their members. We can choose to operate as a weak fragment in isolation, or we can unite and help to empower each other through collaborations.
Who we want to work with
How we want to go about it
movers and shakers
In the age of connections and disruptive technology, we recognize the important role of innovative collaborations through building relationships and establishing connections to streamline communications & maximize team effort.
ALL stakeholders -
on ALL levels
We think it is a strategic disadvantage when we choose to focus on only shortsighted goals. Therefore, we want to include as many parties as possible when we make decisions, implement community projects, and communicate with stakeholders.
EVERYONE in the community
We honor the diversity and uniqueness of our community on ALL levels - local, national, and global. We strive to empower each other as interdependent members and a collective family in this thriving economy of connections.
