Pieter’s Garden Group welcomes you to the El Sereno Community Garden for the first IN-PERSON* community check-in! Say hi to Pieter folx IRL (!), meet the Pieter plot, get to know the El Sereno Community Garden, and be a part of Pieter community initiatives.
We encourage you to meet us at the main gate 10 minutes early so that you can enjoy a silent walking meditation through the garden and introduce yourselves to the plants and many serene spaces. After an intro to the garden, we can jump into and jam on any and all ideas for Pieter community projects & chat with friendly faces.
Before we leave, we can all offer something to the garden for hosting us, perhaps pulling a few weeds, watering any dry plants in the community space, or sitting in meditation with the plants, leaving the space better than we found it. Make sure to pack yourself some drinking water because it may be a bit warm, and please wear a mask at all times in the garden.
*We will have a laptop with us to host a Zoom meeting for those who cannot attend the in-person community check-in.
The Pieter Community Check-In aims to formalize conversations and action items that the Pieter community wishes to engage in outside of the class, workshop, and performance setting. A group that meets monthly give feedback and provide updates on community projects, Pieter Community Check-In will hold space as an anchor for communications and connections amongst the Pieter community.
We invite YOU! to join us in this discussion, to listen, to bring your ideas or to simply come by and see some familiar faces. Due to current circumstances, Pieter Community Check-In will be held online to ensure the safety of all attending. We will be holding check-ins on Zoom every First Saturday of each month.
We have seen how fruitful group discussions have been to generate ideas of how the people of Pieter wish to continue to shape and evolve our ecosystem together. Pieter Community Check-In is made up of everyone who attends and wishes to be heard. There is no formal application or positions, it is here to hold clock time and space for community to gather and organize.
