solstice 2015

solstice and equinox are the most important events of our year. we celebrate abundance and creativity, honor the darkest moment in this cycle, and welcome the return of the light. we gather memories and imagine futures; webs we’ve woven & will maintain, stitches sewn & hems to finish. we believe in the love and creative spirit that unites us. thank you for your support.

After being invited by members of the Exploratorium to participate in making a parklet with students outside the Mission Boys and Girls Club, our plants took a little trip down the block to be arranged by the students.  The photos below are of the final design.  If you would like to see more of the process you can see them here.
