Events at the PLOT 2024

Work Party date poster

 

Our Sunday April 7 Big Work Party brought out about 25 volunteers from the community throughout the day! It was a perfect day for working, no rain, not too hot, laced with little kisses of sunshine! 

We made great strides toward getting the garden ready and the feelings of spring rising in hearts and spirits was palpable. Pizza, samosas, fruit and chocolate eggs helped boost the energy. 

Looking forward to continuing these restorative efforts next Saturday April 13 from 11am to 4 pm. Planting has begun where possible.

Spring Equinox / Festival of Holi

Spring Equinox at the PLOT Sharing Garden and Newton Medicine Wheel. Sun, circling in community, Indigenous teachings, Holi blessings, sharing food, stories, laughter, tears and the sweet songs of spring. 

With gratitude; Surprise Henna designers, beading, poetry and the playfulness of children and the child at heart. 

Flowers were brought and planted at the Medicine Wheel in Honour of the Medicine Wheel Founder Grandma Amy Eustergurling Wuttunee, Eagle Tail Feather. Her birthday is March 19.

Medicine Wheel Rejuvenation

Sunday March 10 officially launched the 2024 season for the PLOT Sharing Garden. The Medicine Wheel was refreshed with crushed granite, starting in the east as Grandma Amy taught us. Welcomed with a Smudge, the stone was placed with much love. Pot luck and sharing with the community was a gift and we even saw the sun try to break through. Grateful for all the helping hands and hearts, and despite the forecast the rain held off until the last tool was put away.

Looking forward to our Spring Equinox Celebration next weekend Sunday March 17 @ noon
