Veggies For All Appreciative Inquiry Gathering 5:30 to 8:30 at the Unity Community Center.
Veggies For All is a program for the community, and it’s important to us that it’s also by the community. Many of you have supported our work over the years by volunteering in the field, helping us wash and deliver our veggies, or advocating for us in your day-to-day lives. As we move forward, we're eager to make sure that the work we're doing reflects the needs and interests identified by you and other members of our community.
To that end, we're excited to invite you to join us Thursday, Nov 29 from 5:30 to 8:30 at the Unity Community Center for an Appreciative Inquiry Gathering, facilitated by Unity College professor Janis Balda and her students. The Appreciative Inquiry process brings together community members and other stake holders to discover the best of what is, dream about what might be, and offer designs for what should be, as relates to VFA's work to support food security in and around Unity.
We expect to use the outcomes of this event, along with other feedback gathered throughout this year as the basis for future work planning and program design.
Light refreshments will be available
Please RSVP to Khris Hogg at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you can join us to explore the possibilities for how Veggies For All can best support food security in our area!

Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's famous investigations of "optimal experience" have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience teaches how, by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness and greatly improve the quality of our lives.
Discussion will be led by Annie Shibles.
