Fresh Ground Cafe will be hosting the graduation ceremony for the 2019 Diploma in Local Democracy class. This past winter (January-April) we had a highly energetic group of participants who worked their way through engaging conversations about living democracy in everyday life. We want to set aside this evening to celebrate both the hard work and commitment of our graduates and the spirit of Local Democracy.

For those who might be interested in taking the Diploma this coming winter the evening will be a great occasion to explore your curiosity, to meet some of our graduates, and to hear their experience with the course. You will also have the opportunity to sign up for the course with applications and other materials available.

Coinciding with out graduation this year will be the launch of Arleen Macpherson’s book “Reflections of St John’s Kitchen: the Meaning of Hospitality.” Arleen volunteered and worked at St John’s Kitchen and the Working Centre for over 25 years, including as coordinator at St John’s Kitchen between 1989 and 1999. The book is a collection of articles wrote for Good Work News over the years. Arleen will be giving the convocation address.

The next Diploma in Local Democracy class begins Wednesday, January 8 2020 and runs every Wednesday night from 7-9 pm until the end of April, with a three-week break at the beginning of March.
