Event Sponsor and Host
John Marder and Sharron Harrison
From the organizer:
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.
This event is hosted by John Marder and Sharron Harrison.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
