The most powerful way to to develop community is through collaboration. Planting Seeds strives to work together as a community to:
- Ensure that the needs of the community are being met
- Ensure that community members are at the center of this process.
Planting Seeds asks how we can, as a community, work together to identify the strengths and needs of the community and assess the barriers and current work being done to address these needs. We aim to collaborate with other organizations to develop collective impact meetings that not only measure the effect that our individual organizations have, but measure the impact that we can have collectively in the community. We aim to push the definition of success further, to the growth of the community as a whole, rather than simply to the individual participants of our programs. We meet the last Wednesday of every month and are currently constructing a database so community members and organizations can be aware of all of the resources available to them.
