April 22 – 10 am at Heron Home, Washington Island.
Is it a coincidence that Earth Day falls during National Poetry Month? We think not. Celebrate both this Earth Day with a Poetry Workshop.
Contemplate the beauty of the world around us through poetry. A fundraiser for Gathering Ground, this workshop will include: reading some odes for the natural world and writing some of our own with prompts. Free will donation. Email Alessandra for more info and location.
