 Challenging Times: Greenspaces, Buddhism and Interconnectedness

Wednesday 12 August 7 – 8.30pm

Speakers: John Marder and Sharron Harrison

‘We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness’ ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

This webinar is an opportunity to explore more deeply the Buddhist understanding of interconnectedness and how we human beings are integral to natural processes.

John Marder will be giving an overview of green spaces in all their diversity from rewilding to sustainable urban gardening, suggesting actions we can take and ways in which we can reconnect with the natural world. Following this Sharron Harrison will share her experience of ‘gleaning’ with young people and sharing the produce with local food share cafes.  There will be opportunities for discussion in small groups and the larger forum.

John Marder is a lifelong environmental horticulturist and Dharma practitioner. His current roles include Professional Associate with RHS, Interfaith officer with NBO and mentor on the Buddhist Prison Correspondence Course

Sharron Harrison lives in sunny Margate by the sea, centre of the universe, moved down from London in 2004.
