Germinating Conversations - edited by Marta Bunnett Wiebe

Playing time: 
Listen in on a conversation about Germinating Conversations.


Join Marta Bunnett Wiebe, the peace and advocacy coordinator for MCC Manitoba and our host, Kyle Rudge, as they talk about Germinating Conversations. The initiative began a decade ago while nurturing relationships between Manitoba food growers and eaters. Through meetings and events, they practiced the art of listening well, having difficult conversations and learned how to hold different, and sometimes opposite, opinions.

Stories emerged out of these conversations and the book, Germinating Conversations, was created. The book launch is on June 3, to register for the event click here.

You can purchase a copy of the book through CommonWord Bookstore and Resource Centre.


Please note: As of July, Threads will air on the first Sunday of the month instead of the fourth. The next episode will air on June 27 and the following on July 4.
