10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Led by Tristan Fin

This workshop will provide a detailed exploration of the tools Sunflower River uses to collaboratively run our community. These tools include variants on the consensus process model, basic non-violent communication techniques, mission, vision and goals. We hear all the time that we are really well organized, and we know we’re good at getting things done. We’d like to show you how we do it, and help you find ways to bring these tools into your community-building projects. The workshop will cover our weekly process, yearly process, and special topics. These tools can be used for an array of contexts, from intentional community to any group working on a common goal.

Sunflower River is a five-person intentional community and farm in Albuquerque’s South Valley. Founded in September 2007, we are in our eleventh year. We have a dual focus on sustainability and spirituality. We are a host-farm for volunteers through the WWOOF-USA program, as well as Workaway and HelpX.

Tristan Fin, a founder and Steward of Sunflower River, is trained in group faciliation, and mediation.


Space is limited! Pre-registration is not required, however, please RSVP by email, text, or private message to Kat before August 20th!

Any questions, please ask. We hope to see you there!
