Nurture creates and inspires authentic, compassion-based experiences and creative community through retreats, catering and Harvest Table Dinners – a safe space to show up exactly as one is.
When you start off as an entrepreneur, you are sold the “latte and laptop in my pajamas” fairy tale.
The reality is that starting your business is a mirror that brings up all your insecurities and shadow spots around issues of worth, integrity, communication, and self care.
There are very few spaces that allow a conversation about how it feels when being an entrepreneur gets hard, because there is this notion that we need to present an “everything’s wonderful here” face to society. The industry is lacking in safe spaces for entrepreneurs to gather in community to talk about the intersections of their lives and businesses in an honest, vulnerable, supportive way.
Multiple offerings promise “Better Business Alignment” or “Self Care Retreats” but they claim the answer is in the offering. At Nurture, the offering is a safe space where you can creatively dialogue with the questions and the answers that are always and already IN YOU.
Doing so in community with like-minded entrepreneurs forges real, honest connection and includes a ripple effect of cross-collaboration and new projects by retreat and Harvest Table Dinner attendees and Nurture alumni.
Tania Love is a Toronto based visual artist who takes the cues for her work from the natural and cultural environment.
Her curiosity in the intersection between traditional methods and innovative expressions has led her to explore a breadth of materials including plant based inks and dyes, milk paint, salvaged wire, tea bags, paper and textiles.
Recipient of numerous grants, international residencies and exhibitions, her work has been seen in public and commercial galleries, pop-up vitrines, in a greenhouse growing vegetables and most recently was included in “Water and Earth”, a curated exhibition bringing attention to “the fragility and uniqueness of the planet on which we live” at MCLA Gallery 51 in North Adams, USA.
Tania places emphasis on tactile, hand crafted processes to invite quiet, slower rhythms and connection to natural cycles.
Founded in 2011 by Len Senater, The Dep is an ongoing, evolving experiment, prototype and proof-of-concept exploring food’s role in building community, creating opportunity and celebrating diversity. It has evolved over the years into a kind of convivial urban food hub where food producers, creators and consumers can connect and explore new food ideas in a fun, informal setting. It’s “a place where interesting food things happen.”
