Leadership in the Garden
Leadership Paradigm Shift The challenges we face in the 21st century are often complex, where multiple causes lead non-linearly to multiple effects. Complex problems are best solved by participatory processes that surface the wisdom of multiple perspectives. Shared leadership models foster co-creation and co-ownership. Deep community engagement is also a tool for promoting equity. Community gardens and networks of folks who grow, cook, preserve and share food are ideal contexts for shared leadership.   

A traditional heroic leader is someone who says “I have the answer and I need to figure out how to get you to come with me.” In a shared leadership model it becomes, “We know the answers- let’s figure out what to do together.”  We believe that whatever the problem or the possibility, community IS the answer.
