Last month the Topsham Public Library Garden Committee hosted a Garden open-house and what a lovely day it was! The weather was perfect, volunteers were hard at work, children played, laughed and made some nature crafts and we even made a few new friends. We call that a success! Thank you to all who joined us.
This month, we have another fun event happening in the gardens and it’s coming right up…
It’s our second annual nature journaling workshop. This year, we will be hosting a series of three workshops, all with a specific theme.
The first in the series, taking place May 18th at 1pm, will be an introduction to the practice of nature journaling and is open to all ages. We’ll be kicking it off with a not-to-be-missed 3D slide presentation by a very special friend that’s sure to inspire you. The rest of our time will be spent in the gardens where you’ll receive individual guidance as you make a nature journal entry.
We will provide notebooks and sketching pencils, although do feel free to bring your own supplies. You may also choose to bring your camera if you’d like to add photos to your journal.
We hope to see you then… P.S. If you’d like to read more about nature journaling, check out my post here: The Art of Observation Don’t forget to view the resources at the end.
