SEEDS Mission and Vision
At SEEDS our Mission is to cultivate positive communication and develop fundamental understanding of how people can be in productive relationship with each other. We do this through mediation, facilitation, training and development of restorative practices.
Pursuit of this Mission is intended to result in the following Vision for our community:
We see conflict as an opportunity for positive growth and transformation in our society. We envision a future in which all individuals, organizations, and communities have the skills and capacity needed to engage in effective dialogue and peaceful resolution of issues and conflicts.
SEEDS is an organization that is committed to transformational social change. We recognize that the way we work takes the long view – it takes time to grow and develop the sustainable practices we believe are foundational to cultivating community and transforming conflict.
