SUSTAINABLE FARM SANCTUARIES: TWO-PART PRIVATE INTERACTIVE GROUP DISCUSSION AND WORKSHOP

P.E.A.C.E. in partnership with Jill Tedeschi from Healthy Herd Consulting, is offering a two-part private interactive group discussion and workshop surrounding sustainable sanctuary operation for Canadian farm sanctuary operators.

WHAT WILL BE COVERED

SESSION 1: SUSTAINABLE SHELTER SYSTEMS

This first session centers on logistics: responsible capacity for care, sanctuary set-up, emergency planning, facilities, record keeping, cleaning schedule creation, forecasting needs with aging populations, communicating resident health changes, and more!

SESSION 2: SUSTAINABLE PEOPLE

There is no sanctuary without cooperative, communicative, balanced human teams. The second session centers around volunteer and staff management, compassion fatigue, boundary-setting, burnout, founder’s syndrome, inter-sanctuary relationships, veterinary relationships, donor relationships, work-life balance, martyrdom, toxic workplaces, and imposter syndrome. We see sanctuaries close all too often, leaders fall from grace, and once-revered sanctuaries transform into neglect cases. How can we ensure that this is a sustainable vocation for all who choose it?

FORMAT

Attendees will electronically submit questions and points for discussion before the sessions. There is no limit to the number of questions submitted per attendee.

SESSION 1: Sunday | November 14, 2021

SESSION 2: Sunday | November 21, 2021

TIME

BOTH SESSIONS: 10:00 AM PT | Each session is 60-90 minutes and facilitated through Zoom.

MEET JILL TEDESCHI

Jill Tedeschi - PEACE Sustainable Sanctuaries Workshop

Jill Tedeschi has over ten years of experience at US farmed animal sanctuaries, both small and extra-large. Starting as an intern, Jill has held various roles at sanctuaries, including Master Caregiver, Trainer, Shelter Manager, and Shelter Director.

Jill’s on a mission to cultivate resiliency among farmed animal sanctuaries. She’s seen too many well-intentioned sanctuaries close their doors due to overcrowding, mismanagement, overwhelm, and the lowering of standards. She’s seen too many good-hearted folks leave the vocation due to burnout, compassion fatigue, founder’s syndrome, or harmful work environments.

After years of informally consulting sanctuary operators, Jill started her practice Healthy Herd Consulting in 2019. Jill currently supports North American sanctuary operators through 1:1 work as a mentor and strategist. When she’s not working, you’ll find Jill doing something with salt: eating savory snacks, sweating, or swimming in the ocean.
