Come and try nature journaling, a mindful practice that switches on your intentional curiosity, encourages your creativity and reconnects you with nature.
This workshop will cover all the different elements of Eucalypts- leaves, flowers, gumnuts, seed, bark and hollows. As each element is explored we will creatively journal them, learn about which animals call a gum-tree home and come to understand why they are so important in our landscape.
Upon arrival you'll be seated in the mezzanine amongst Eucalyptus flowers, foliage, and seed-pods. You'll receive a stitch-bound sketch book for you to journal in (and take home!) and have access to various drawing materials and watercolour paints. A wholesome lunch and herbal tea will also be provided by Valley of Yore. These workshops are always a relaxing, educational and enriching experience; the perfect way to spend the day for any nature lover!
Hannah will be your host, guiding you through how to creatively record what you observe and teaching you all about the ecology of Eucalypts. Hannah is a creative and self confessed nature nerd with 10+ years experience in conservation and environmental management. Her obsession and passion for native plants is evident in everything she does; inspiring people to fall in love with their local environment is at the heart of her business.
