Coffee Conversations: Using Gardening as a Coping Tool

April 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Forge Breast Cancer Survivor Center hosts a virtual “Coffee Conversation” on select mornings that features a 30-minute interview with a survivor, co-survivor, or medical professional on a topic, followed by a time for conversation with participants.

April 26th’s Coffee Conversation features Elizabeth Vander Kamp. Elizabeth is a Master Gardener, Compassionate Listening Facilitator, Certified Zentangle Teacher, wanderer, beauty seeker, and the Creative Director of her newly expanded business, Summer red designs. She agrees with Mr. Rogers’ statement – listening is an act of love. Gardening is a gateway to listening to ourselves and the earth. It also gives us a chance to co-labor in the creation of beauty.

Please join our Coffee Conversation to talk with Elizabeth about utilizing gardening as a coping skill!
