More and more people are applying specifically to focus on a writing project. Do you favor having a separate writing retreat, or is it a better experience to have a mix of people working on different things?*
On a scale of 1-10, (one being not important, 10 being most important), how important/valuable would it be for us to offer more concrete ways to intersect meaningfully with the farm while fellows are here?* 12345678910
Do you have specific suggestions for the kind of interactions with the farm that would be most helpful?*
Similarly, serving healthy, locally grown food is a core part of what we offer fellows. Do you have thoughts for how our food program, our chef, and the kitchen itself could be more a part of the fellowship?
Having thought about these questions, what other ideas have they provoked in you for improving the Better Selves Fellowship?
