“How To Draw A Tree” Wellness Circle

A space for Trees, Humans and Co-Creativity

We have a permanent space for further co-creation with our tree friends thanks to Mwangi and John at University of Guelph Grounds Department. The South West Corner of Johnston Green at the University of Guelph. Please get in touch if you want to program here… Open to all. See below for current and past events.

The 4 friends in this circle are “sister trees” to trees living at the Arboretum who participated in the sound walks shared on this site and onsite at The Arboretum where we learned How To Draw Trees to us

From our April 17 event … we have a LIVING Sculpture! Sticks onsite – come add to it for the next few weeks!
