Homeschool & Earth Stewardship
Outdoor Circle Garden Classrooms on Elementary School Playground.
All programming incorporates the practice of restorative communication circle strategies.
The Circle forms a container that can safely “hold” conflicting viewpoints and diverse perspectives.
Circles with youth offers opportunity to practice empathetic communication and creates a quality of engagement with one another that is respectful and non-judgmental, which supports a trusting environment where creativity, insight and growth in the collective group wisdom flourishes.
