The Art of Tending

An artistic meditative biophilic experience


The Art of Tending is a two-hour journey for those seeking to increase their connection with the living world. Utilizing a deep ecology approach and artistic invitations we will discover the life of the soil, open to communication with plants, and witness our intrinsic interconnection with the web of life.  

This is designed for people with no experience with gardening to those who have gardened their whole life. This is for anyone interested in deepening their connection with the life of nature, and discovering how tending the soil and plants is a form of self-care. 

For single to groups of five.

To schedule please contact Reed.

Please bring footwear that can get wet, comfortable clothing to move and sit in, artistic supplies from journals to paints etc. Also drinking water and snacks.

Fresh harvested herbal tea will be available.
