Capstone Presentation: "Foodsheds & Watersheds: Place and Peacebuilding in the Shenandoah Valley"

Where Dining Hall, West dining room

Duration 1 hour

Over the past year, CJP student Jonathan McRay did permaculture design at a rural homestead, which models building resilient home economies as a central element to justice and peacebuilding; worked at New Community Project’s sustainable living center; and helped coordinate an action research project with the Northend Greenway to design strategies for neighborhood engagement along Blacks Run, a stream that runs through the center of Harrisonburg. This practicum reformulates Lederach’s famous pyramid as three spheres of influence and confluence: home, community, and bioregion. Come hear about local projects and the relevance of permaculture and bioregional praxis to conflict transformation.

This event is free and open to the public. Hot drinks and snacks will be served.
