Fun Things for Spring 2017…

Despite the seemingly unending rain we have been having a few good-often impromptu-garden or  play sessions at Trillium North the last while. If you have wandered by, you may have seen evidence of some of our work; weaving new borders, improving the  compound structure for supporting  rain tents and more. Here are a few dates we know we will be there rain or shine, so come join in!

Sunday April 23rd 1-4pm: weaving willow garden borders and rope making tutorial

Saturday April 29th 10am-12noon: weaving borders, spreading woodchips and doing a serious weeding and some seeding in the native swale zone- with assistance from Environmental Youth Alliance’s Native Nursery Program.

Saturday May 13th 12noon-3pm: Community Dog Groom and Spin-a-Long!

Did you know that the  Salish Nations kept dogs as  fibre resource– not pets? Alas those dogs are now extinct, but on this day we turn our attention to our furry friends that live with us now, and invite any dogs with an undercoat being shed to come to the park, leashed and with their  humans and a brush. Spinners will be standing by to sample the coats! Learn how to use a drop spindle, sample how fibres are blended, and try out our great wheel- with another local urban animal fibre- mane hair from the horses at the race track!groom and spinalong poster-page-001
