Nourishing Cities is dedicated to changing the landscape of New York City. As such we must start with the cultural landscape.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them“
In order for real change to occur in the physical space it must first take place in the heart and mind of individuals and society as a whole. The Full Circle Series is the vehicle in which we will be ushering in this change of heart and mind. The design, build and maintenance of productive landscapes and reginerative green infrastructure aspect of our business will move these ideas to our hands. The business model, a worker cooperative, is another way we are stiving to create the world we want to live in now. Our mission, “To reconnect communities thru the cultivation of living soil and nutritious food.” will address the sociological and physical built environment solutions as well.
Here is the lineup of speakers, dates and topics for the Full Circle Series. These are intimate conversations with short talks by modern thought leaders and lengthy question, andswer and discussion sessions with the audiance. They are scheduled to occur on the 2nd Friday of each month at Studio353 located in Midtown Manhattan’s Theatre District (353 West 48th Street (b/t 8th & 9th Aves) 2nd Floor). Each entry will be updated here with registration information and archived audio from the event as these things become live on the web, so check back often!
