Hope and Strategies for the Coming Decade:
A Perspective on Climate Change and Activism

6:30 pm

March 4, 2019

Please join us for an evening of sharing and discussion about finding hope in challenging times with Patricia Newkirk. Patricia, former associate director of William Penn House and member of Friends Meeting of Washington (now living in the Seattle area), will share insights and queries from her explorations of gardening, social activism, and mindfulness. 

Patricia has spent the last 8 years as the Garden Manager of a permaculture garden and food forest at Songaia Co-Housing Community near Seattle. Like many of us, she finds herself frequently in despair over the looming effects of climate change and wonders what she should be doing, or if her current efforts are enough. But thanks to her role as permaculture teacher and gardener at Songaia, she has discovered many extraordinary actions that are bubbling up, demonstrating possibility and hope for the planet.  

Join us at the William Penn House on Monday evening the 4th of March, from 6:30 to 8, and be encouraged and inspired to find a way to engage with local citizens everywhere in responding.

The talk will begin at 6:30. All are welcome to bring dinner to the House anytime after 5 and join our dinner conversation.
