How do we raise children to be the architects of a new world while we're still in this one? This space is for parents and caregivers of children to share experiences and ideas about child rearing in topic-based, small group discussions. Participants will leave feeling validated, challenged and supported by a new network of friends. Vegan lunch with gluten-free options provided as well as lunchtime childcare. Weather permitting, we will meet on the lawn outside the North entrance to McGregor.
