As part of our bilingual Senderos series, we will make something beautiful from nature to decorate your home or give as a gift!
Sonoma Ecology Center hosts its wreath-making workshop at Sonoma Garden Park on Saturday, Dec. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Using all local greenery and forest findings, you will learn techniques to bundle and loop, creating original rings of beauty. An ancient tradition, wreaths make the perfect winter welcome at an entrance, or as holiday centerpiece or wall decoration. Whether yours is a traditional evergreen wreath or a New Year “hoop of hope,” its intention will shine through.
This bilingual event for all ages is led by Julia Megna, SEC’s Education Project Manager and owner of Hundred Acre Greenery, and Alma Shaw, SEC’s Senderos Naturales coordinator.
Sonoma Garden Park was protected by Ag + Open Space in November of 2011 for recreation and preservation of its natural resources and for its learning classroom environment for agriculture field trips for nearby elementary schools through Sonoma Ecology Center’s “Growing Discovery” program. The 6-acre property, nestled 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.
