Event description

Description

Create a 5x7 piece of “plantable” recycled paper while learning about the importance of native plants! The paper is made by blending old newsprint and junk mail to create new paper pulp. Participants will add a native seed mix that will then be pressed into paper sheets. Once dried, the paper can be used for cards or letters, and later the paper can be planted to start growing the seeds embedded within. The workshop is open to all ages, but is recommended for children 5+.
