This year's course graduated 10 women, who were all offered paid internships in the floral industry!
Reflections from the EarthLinks Workshop
Each workshop at EarthLinks begins with a community-led time of reflection and discussion. This encourages the sharing of wisdom and experience within our community. In order to bring YOU, our supporters, into this community, we have begun posting reflections from the workshop on our website.

Spring sales are blooming!
You wouldn't believe how many new seedlings are sprouting up around the Peace Garden, in our temporary green house and cold frames, and even sometimes in the EarthLinks office! There is an incredible amount of hope and anticipation coming to life in these little green "children" of the garden.
This Spring is shaping up to be a time of growth and beauty for us, and that includes a number of sales and fundraising events to benefit EarthLinks. We'll be selling our craft products at churches, local markets and festivals, and at a very special night of art, fashion, and local music. As always, please remember to keep EarthLinks in mind as we celebrate the love of family on Mother's Day and Father's Day. Our Products make the perfect "triple" gift -- for your loved one, for those on the margins, and for the planet.
Read on below for details on our upcoming sales and events, and be sure to check the list on our website for new sales as they are posted!
