Day 19 of #EOLdailydedications and Day 9 of #EOLloveinaction : Uplift One Another. Ecology of Leadership alum, business owner, mother, and permaculturalist @lesliecbennett has been busy lately - this year alone, her @pinehouseediblegardens were featured in Martha Stewart Living, she gave birth to a second child, and she launched a special project called Black Sanctuary Gardens. We are featuring Leslie and @blksanctuarygardens today as a beautiful example of love in action. BSG is a series of garden installations inspired in part by Alice Walker’s naming of the garden as a site for black women’s spirituality, creativity and artistic work -- and also by the urgent need for safe spaces for people of color in this country. Leslie says, “Our first Black Sanctuary Garden will be at Alena Museum, a 501(c)(3) co-working and creative space for the African Diaspora in West Oakland, and will be a publicly accessible, aesthetic, edible, culturally grounded garden installation that serves as restorative plant-based space for the peace, self-care and inspiration of the black community. We are so excited for the opportunity to create garden space that reflects and supports our specific experiences and heritage as people of color and that offers sanctuary for black people to commune, converse, collaborate, heal, reflect and be nourished.” Find out more and donate to support this amazing project at www.blacksanctuarygardens.com.
