Edgar Cahn passed away on the morning of January 23, 2022 at age 86, leaving behind an immense legacy of making revolutionary change by planting seeds wherever his heart, mind, and soul were invested. He embodied the highest ideals of mobilizing communities to come together to express their strengths and to restore mutual care. In the spirit of Edgar Cahn, we wish to carry on his legacy by helping you plant your own seeds of change.
"Like clean air and water, we have always taken family and neighborhood and community for granted. Increasingly, we are having to buy foster care and kinship care and elder care. And the systems providing that care are breaking down. We need to invest in rebuilding family, neighborhood, community, and civil society. Why wait for a dying, archaic system to fix itself? We have plenty of people, plenty of work to be done, and an equal time on this Earth. We can do better." - Edgar Cahn
