Women Healing Women Healing Earth

We are excited to announce a new initiative for 2021! Women Healing Women Healing Earth consists of three programs held in person, small group, with COVID-safe protocol. Priority is to low-income women who live in the North Quabbin region who want to enhance wellbeing, learn skills that promote resilience and happiness, and who would benefit from time with a supportive, diverse group of women in a relaxing outdoor setting. We are committed to creating program groups that are diverse in regards to culture and race, age, and life experience.

Download the application for Garden Women or Garden with your Kids. These programs are described below. Spaces are very limited and will be filled on a rolling basic. You can download this application, fill it out, and email it to us. Contact info is on the application.

In addition, Women Create and Explore summer workshops will also be small group, 1/2 day experiences with half of slots reserved for North Quabbin women. We are planning these now.
