Saturday, December 5 from 1-5pm: Gifts of Nature Family Workshop
Bring the kids and grandkids to Boxerwood’s lodge to craft treats for the birds and wildlife that winter in Rockbridge. Honeysuckle wreaths, cranberry garlands, dried fruit kabobs, peanut butter pinecones, and suet-and-seed fruit cups are some of the edible ornaments you can create. Need environmentally-friendly gifts for family and friends? Make totes from recycled birdseed sacks, birdfeeders from dried gourds, gift tags from last winter’s holiday cards, and nature-stamped gift wrap for all occasions.
The fee to participate is $5/family for Boxerwood members or $10/family for non-members. Boxerwood will provide vines, cones, winter berries, and greenery from the garden, as well as suet, raffia, ribbon and other project supplies. Families are asked to contribute one type of wildlife food, such as seeds, nuts, dried fruits, popcorn, or fresh cranberries that will be shared by all participants. And bring recycled cards and seed sacks if you have them.
