VIRTUAL Nature Craft Wreath Making at Sonoma Garden Park
Sun, Dec 20, 2020 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Pacific Standard Time
Gather your family or household together for a VIRTUAL wreath making session! Our in-person event was canceled for health safety reasons due to the recent stay at home order and rise in COVID cases. However, much like the ecosystem that we live in, we are adaptive to the changes in our world. We will be setting up a Zoom instructed session for a group of interested participants on Sunday, December 20th at 10:00 am-12:30 pm. Materials will be provided ahead of time for individual households(See below). Note that there will only be one session and space is limited!
VERY IMPORTANT- We will have boxes of materials ready for pick up on Saturday, December 19th from 9:15-12:00 pm at Sonoma Garden Park(19996 7th street east, Sonoma). The only other item that you will need is a sharp pair of scissors and that solstice spirit!
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, holiday centerpiece, or wall decoration. Whether yours is a traditional evergreen wreath or a new year "hoop of hope", its intention will shine through.
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 learning classroom environment for agriculture field trips for nearby elementary schools through Sonoma Ecology Center’s “Growing Discovery” program. The 6-acre property, hidden 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.
*Donations for the additional supplies required for the take-home kits are graciously appreciated!
