#ElderWisdom | Stories from the Green Bench

Erin Davis along with co-host Lloyd Hetherington explore friendship, tragedy, love, life, learning and so much more on our Stories from the Green Bench podcast. 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. Your seat on the green bench is ready and waiting.
