Episode 10: Gardening and Nonviolence - Part 2

In today’s episode of The “Center”, host Marsha Thrall talks about both the restorative and nonviolent nature of both home gardening and community gardening.

Within the conversation, she will be joined by Donna Santiago, who oversees programming and enrichment for the Pathways Living Center in Clinton, Iowa. Pathways Living Center provides housing and care for adults living with mental and emotional challenges, and Pathways is one of this year’s recipients of a no-cost garden plot at the Clinton Community Garden.
