Description

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 host two wreath-making workshops at Sonoma Garden Park Saturday, December 18th, one in English(9:30) and one in Spanish (1:00 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, 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, bilingual events coordinator Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. 

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 are greatly appreciated to cover the cost of supplies for the workshop!
