Beginning the Conversation @ Seattle University, the LeRoux Room (Room STCN 160)
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Beginning the Conversation is a series of moderated interdisciplinary discussions about one of the most profound experiences of life—death. Dying, death, and surviving the death of a loved one are lived experiences that transcend economic, racial, and gender divides.This series aims to inspire conversations about end-of-life concerns  across disciplines with perspectives from psychology, philosophy, theology, nursing, law, business, and bioethics. Choosing to live, choosing to die, and initiating or withdrawing life-sustaining treatments are just a few of the topics to be considered.

The kickoff event will be the introduction of a textbook, “Advance Care Planning – Communicating About Matters of Life and Death” by one of the editors and series moderator, Susana McCune MA, CT., who is a doctoral student at Antioch University Seattle. Each event in the series will consist of a featured keynote speaker, moderated 30-minute panel discussion, reflections, and moderated table talks based on the speakers’ remarks. It takes compassionate people working in a multitude of roles to facilitate meaningful end-of-life experiences; these experiences can be enhanced through communication. Let the conversations begin.

Morethana Farm Work Party @ Morethana Farms in Woodinville, WA
May 30 all-day

Are you interested in getting your hands dirty with sustainable farming?

Join us the last Saturday of every month for our Morethana Saturday work party. We’ll be seeding, planting starts, designing and installing drip irrigation, sifting and treating the soil, exploring harvesting techniques, and lots of other fun stuff. It’s a great way burn some calories and shake off the city for a few hours. Please email morethana.farm@gmail.com for information on carpooling.

About Morethana

Morethana Farm is a six-acre organic agriculture and agroforestry project located within the Sammamish Valley, near the city of Woodinville. A joint project of Pacific Bamboo ResourcesAntioch University Seattle, and SeaChar, among other local and regional groups, Morethana Farm represents an exciting, new community collaboration.

Get in touch with us! 

Here we are on Google Maps. Find us at MorethanaFarm.org and like us on Facebook. Meeting times vary, so email us at morethana.farm@gmail.com for more information on volunteering and internships.

Program Objectives

Morethana Farm provides opportunities for individuals and groups to engage in hands-on projects, and so collaboratively:

  • Study, design, and demonstrate a variety of innovative Permaculture Design practices associated with sustainable, low-energy input agriculture. And, by extension, provide a venue to support and advance student and faculty teaching and research, and associated field projects;
  • Cultivate community relations and partnerships and activities within and beyond the Farmstead, and;
  • Contribute to the progressive implementation of a full-featured Permaculture Design for the 5-6 Acre land space, demonstrating both immediate and emerging possibilities of a working farmstead with diverse perennial and annual edible landscapes.

Learning About Permaculture

Permaculture design is a practical, whole-system design approach for meeting our needs of food, energy, shelter and materials, and the social, economic, ecological and educational contexts that support them. These methods support Antioch’s commitment to sustainability, both in nature and our communities. Dr. Jonathan Scherch and colleagues teach permaculture design courses and content at Antioch University Seattle, and will be using Morethana Farm as a field lab. To learn more about permaculture design, check out Jonathan Scherch’s recent documentary film, Sustainability in Exile: Tibetan farmers cultivating compassion, which follows refugee Tibetan farmers and the challenges they face as they pursue compassionate (permaculture) farming practices. Also check out the One Straw Revolution, the story of Japanese farmer Masanobu Fukuoka who developed a revolutionary system of natural farming.
