Human nature is part of Nature, and like Nature, we will only thrive when we embrace, interact and co-create with our diversity.
The Garden of WE Platform
Humbly seeding, cultivating and growing local and global solutions together
We built it because…
A safe space…
HOW IT WORKS
A social media platform…
We are at a crossroad in history, we can choose to continue to be unconsciously reactive and perpetuate our current state of global affairs. Or we can choose to help each other become more conscious and creative and together build another future!
The choice is yours!

We built the Garden of WE because our interactions on the major social media platforms seem to divide us more than they bring us together. It seems that no matter what the issue, topic, video or story posted, we seem unable to hear each other’s differences and respond in ways the further mutual respect and understanding.
This is not surprising given the overall divisive mood that exists in our country and the world right now. Our frustrations with the political process and imbalanced economy; the media’s emphasis on their own ratings rather than a mission to serve us with reliable information; and our worries about the future leave us feeling helpless and angry, which then spill over onto each other.
Now more than ever we need to awaken to our interdependence and see that no matter our differences, we are facing overwhelming humanitarian and planetary crises that are only going to get bigger.
A fundamental shift in our values and in the choices we are now making regarding how each one of us invests our life force is called for. What you do, think, and feel matters to the entire fabric of life.
A safe space that exposes our innermost feelings and thoughts; that reveals to us our universal longing to be seen, heard, connect, belong and contribute.
A place that rewards listening from a humble, kind, respectful, open-minded and caring heart.
Where our diverse beliefs, opinions, and past experiences inspire us to discover new common grounds.
A place where we build bridges between each other that will lead to creating out of the box solutions.
Where we help each other live these values by holding each other and ourselves accountable.
How it Works
The Garden of WE is the social media platform you have been waiting for. Unlike any other platform, it is governed by the highest rules of engagement. When entering the Garden, you are asked to sign a contract that you agree to hold yourself and other Gardeners accountable to showing up humble, respectful, open-minded, caring, and authentic.
Once you enter, you can see, on a real-time map, how your neighbors, people in your country, and around the world feel about current events issues, ranging from climate change, to elections, to pop culture. Our map will show how many people are angry or disgusted with the media’s coverage of the elections; how many are happy and inspired by the latest Elon Musk’s latest solar roof panels; or sad and fearful about the handling of North Dakota pipeline issue. You’d be able to pop into conversations happening on the map, search existing “channels”, or customize your own feed to explore the subjects that matter most to you.
When you’re ready to share your own feelings and thoughts on a particular issue, the app will pause you and invite you to reflect and choose from two comment options: Reactive or Creative. Since so many of our reactions are determined by our feelings, the Reactive option gives you an opportunity to vent your feelings without consideration to others. You will be able to post on the reactive wall (much like on a graffiti wall). If you feel like being constructive and wish to forward conversation, then you can post in the Garden. Our objective is to create a safe space for those of us who are seeking to move beyond reactivity and divisiveness toward unity and creativity.
