In March of 2014 Worcester Tree Initiative hosted a community discussion on Urban Orchards in Worcester. The discussion was fruitful in a number of ways and in the 9 months since Worcester has seen the creation of three new urban orchards/groves, one on Jaques Ave off of Chandler St. and another at the top of Newton Hill, adjacent to Elm Park, and the third in Dodge Park on Randolph Rd.

 

In this discussion Worcester Tree Initiative would like to share about what we learned in the process of planning and planting these urban orchards with a brief presentation, as well as continue the discussion. We encourage anyone with a desire to see more food growing within the city limits to join the conversation and bring their thoughts to the table.

    Contact: Anitza Guadarrama-Tiernan   617-502-8751   anitza.guadarrama-tiernan@state.ma.us
   

This one day training program has the goal of preparing community professionals to conduct Abusive Head Trauma prevention trainings in their agencies and communities.   Abusive Head Trauma (AHT) is the name for injuries to an infant’s brain caused by vigorous shaking. This kind of violent shaking most often happens as a result of a caregiver’s extreme and overwhelming frustration in response to a baby’s incessant crying.   The effects of Abusive Head Trauma are devastating for the victims and their families.  Very importantly, Abusive Head Trauma can be prevented.

The training provides participants with an understanding of Abusive Head Trauma including its definition, causes, and consequences.  Participants will also learn methods of engaging parents and other caregivers in strength-based discussions related to understanding and responding effectively to infant crying and to calming themselves in situations where they may be frustrated or overwhelmed with an infant’s crying.  Finally, participants are prepared to deliver a half-day community training module in their agencies and communities. At the end of the training they receive the full community training module including accompanying instructional videos and become part of the Children’s Trust’s network of community AHT trainers.
