Nourishing Cities presents The Full Circle Series

FCS logo

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

-A. Einstein

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.

We look forward to learning and celebrating with and within our communities.
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!

This speaker series is a capital campaign in which Nourishing Cities is co-sponsoring these events along with the Traditional Nutritional Guild (TNG). Our percentage of the proceeds will go towards working capital for us to launch our worker cooperative which will offer landscape services that both heal the land and feed the people.
A special thanks to KMO of the C-Realm podcast, who is the moderator for most of the evenings and will be recording, editing, hosting all of the conversations for us as well as posting them on the internet far all of you that cannot be present for the conversations.
We look forward to engaging with many of you during these intimate evenings sessions and co-creating the world & communities in which we want to live, work and play.

Sincerely,
Gil, Tom, Sharon & Phil
