Kathy Buckworth hosts the #ElderWisdom | Stories from the Green Bench podcast, a virtual place to share, learn, grow, laugh and more in conversations with her co-host and a variety of guests. The Green Bench is a symbol of elder wisdom. Physically or virtually, the bench invites us all to sit alongside a senior, share a conversation, or give and offer advice.
It challenges the stigma seniors face; the ageism still so prevalent in society. It reminds us of the wealth of wisdom our elders offer and in doing so, helps restore them to a place of reverence.
”The greatest untapped resource in Canada, if not the world, is the collective wisdom of our elders.” -Ron Schlegel
Your seat on the green bench is ready and waiting.
