[Note, the English session is full but NEW DATE ADDED- December 21st! The Spanish session still has sign-ups available at https://sec.simpletix.com/e/61072.]
Gather friends, let’s make a circle round on the winter solstice! We will make something beautiful from nature to decorate your home or give as a gift.
Sonoma Ecology Center will host two wreath-making workshops at Sonoma Garden Park on Saturday, December 19th, one in English (9:30 am) and one in Spanish (1 pm). Using all local greenery and forest findings, you will learn techniques to bundle and loop, creating original rings of glory. An ancient tradition, wreaths make the perfect winter welcome at an entrance, or as a holiday centerpiece or wall decoration. Whether yours is a traditional evergreen wreath or a New Year “hoop of hope,” its intention will shine through.
The workshops are led by Julia Megna, SEC’s Education Project Manager and owner of Hundred Acre Greenery, and Alma Shaw, Senderos coordinator for Team Sugarloaf and Sonoma Ecology Center.
Sonoma Garden Park was protected by Ag + Open Space in November of 2011 for recreation and preservation of its natural resources and as a learning classroom environment for field trips for nearby elementary schools through Sonoma Ecology Center’s “Growing Discovery” program. The 6-acre property, located in eastern Sonoma, is an incredible public park and working garden site in Sonoma Valley, containing a wide array of habitats alongside sustainably designed systems for both agriculture use and landscaping purposes.
There is no charge for this outing, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag + Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.
