Green Sanctuary plans “Place-Making” workshop Aug. 11

The Green Sanctuary Team will not be meeting in July, but we are planning our next “Got Skills” workshop.
Join the Green Sanctuary Team from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday Aug. 11 for a workshop on “Place-Making.” The workshops are all about learning skills useful in taking care of the planet – including sewing, letter writing, safe biking, camping, plant identification and more. The more you know, the better care you can take of earth’s precious resources.

In the Aug. 11 Place-Making workshop, we will learn about the work the Grounds Team is doing to encourage native plants and the species dependent on them. We will also learn to identify some common plants (including poison ivy), what and how to weed, and how to collect seeds. As a wrap up activity, we will make “seed bombs” with the seeds we collect so you can start native plants in your own yard.

This is an all ages activity. Children and youth under 18 must be accompanied by their caregivers. We will have water and snacks. Because we will be working in our wild areas, long pants and close-toed shoes are a very good idea. Be sure to use sunscreen and hats.

Please email Jan Weaver if you can come or if you have questions about the event.

The next GS meeting will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 14 at 2616 Hillshire Drive. All are welcome to join us as we plan events for the next church year.
