Description:

What can plants tell us about a place? In this exploratory game for all ages, you will use all of your senses to detect clues about the histories of a particular site, using local vegetation as a guide.
Which histories and memories are referenced explicitly in our public monuments, and which others lurk below the surface? Participants will be guided through a series of activities that engage taste, touch, observation, memory, and imagination to unearth the secrets of a place that might otherwise seem familiar.
Being attentive to what was there before allows us to think about sustainability in its every sense: social, economic and environmental.

Special Instructions:

Note about allergies: This workshop will include some tasting activities. Please let us know upon arrival if you have food allergies or other restrictions (everything will be vegan).

Rain or shine. Part of this workshop is located outdoors on the CCA grounds. Bring appropriate clothing, and an umbrella.
(meet in the entrance of the CCA)

Appropriate for all ages
Maximum: 30 participants
