What’s your Recipe for Respite?
COVID is still here. And families need a break to stay safe and strong. We’re interested in learning about and sharing what families are already doing to get a break, as well as understanding the unique ingredients still needed to make respite a reality. Please join our discussion circle about how we can work together for families and their loved ones to have a safe and helpful break from the significant and daily stresses going on right now and into the next year.

What is your garden ritual?  Whether you are aseasoned gardener or branching out as a beginner, connect with others and shareyour green thumb tips and flora favourites. Start a seed exchange, or explorecreating your own outdoor sanctuary that you can retreat to when you have sparemoments. Nurture these recipes for respite to grow from seeds into stalks andblooms.
