What really touched my soul was the people. I had the unique honour of hearing and feeling the powerful words of the founders and friends and leaders of Hollyhock, who spoke to me in poetry and story about the creation of this powerful vortex on our planet of the mission of this convening space, and of the gift that it is for us all to be partners in supporting it.

Fouts, Executive Director, Bioneers; Founders + Friends 2016 Attendee
