Blossoms & Branches: Spring Wreath Crafting

Saturday, April 13, 2024
10:00am – 12:30pm

$45 per person
Ages 12 and up welcome
Meet at the Dwight Center

Let spring welcome you to Pepperwood! Come view the land sprouting up flowers and grasses in its offering of hope. We will connect with the land by creating spring wreaths of flowers and natural findings. With step by step instruction, feedback, and encouragement your wreath will be a unique creation to hang and enjoy at home or gift to someone. Using spring blossoms and herbs we will also concoct an herb vinegar for your kitchen. Nature shares so much healing and culinary goodness with us, let’s learn to utilize it for our pleasure and well being. Please  bring a clean, empty jar with a tight fitting lid for the vinegar recipe. All other supplies and light refreshments will be provided. Please make a gift to yourself of this opportunity, and consider bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy among the oaks after the activities end.
