Training on improving communication offered

0

NORWAY — The Alan Day Community Garden and Oxford County Wellness Collaborative will offer a training on building trust and commitment from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, June 26.

It will be held at Alan Day Community Garden, 26 Whitman St.

In a restorative community, members practice being more inclusive in the way they communicate with one another through acknowledging each other’s gifts while understanding the challenges that may cause someone to feel isolated and disconnected within their community.

The training sessions aim to restore how people interact with neighbors in a more meaningful, respectful way. Learning and practicing these skills is a step toward creating a healthier community.

The training is free and includes refreshments and a healthy meal. Those who find the training valuable are invited to make a donation so the collaborative can offer additional trainings.

The Oxford County Wellness Collaborative is administered by Healthy Oxford Hills, a Healthy Community Coalition and a department of Stephens Memorial Hospital.
