Courageous Conversations about COVID-19

This is different than the typical content that we post here, because these are not typical times. In addition to continuing to provide healthy, artisan-crafted pickles and preserves for our community and increasing our safety protocols, Ruby has been putting her professional social work skills to good use. Before she was a farmer and beekeeper, Ruby was a social worker focused on helping children and families who were going through (or recovering from) severe trauma. In this role, she learned how to structure difficult conversations so they can be most productive.

During this time of uncertainty, we are having a lot of difficult conversations with our loved ones, and Ruby realized that she could help folks by providing templates and resources for these courageous conversations.
