As we acknowledge the limitations inherent in our global pandemic, we also create space for the invitations to unite, to witness, to advocate, to love, and to heal.
Together we call upon our shared understandings:
- WHOLENESS: People are whole and simultaneously moving toward a fuller experience of their wholeness.
- DIVERSITY: People’s full diversity of experience deepens awareness, alignment, and action.
- RESOURCEFULNESS: People are inherently resourceful and wise.
- FREEDOM: People have the freedom to choose how they respond.
- POSSIBILITY: Much more is possible than any of us can imagine.
And offer resources and support for navigating this unique and expansive journey together:

Kellogg Sisters Feed & Seed, along with global partners and individuals invite you to give meaning to your experience and join your voice with others by creating your own square, today.
