Learning to Applied Practice Series Pathways

 

Field Cultivator

Field Cultivators are inspiring, resilient and fearless of the unknown. Their connections to communities propel them to take risks to soar to new heights. With a sharp vision for the future, Field Cultivators use their agility and experience within the field to inform planning and action. Participants in this pathway seek models of external Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression (AR/AO) practices and space to think more broadly about operations and programming

Rooting and grounding are themes you will find throughout this learning journey, as there's so much we can and do learn from our natural environment. For this cohort, we are inspired by qualities of the eagle: resilience, care and vision.
