Discover the Peace Garden on Earth Day!

SUNDAY, APRIL 22 – EARTH DAY AT THE PEACE GARDEN,
NOON-3PM
Activities for Children and Adults

On Earth Day, Sunday, April 22 from Noon to 3 p.m. Gardens for Humanity will host a family friendly event, “Trees, Bees and Solar Cookies,” at the Peace Garden at the Sedona Creative Life Center. This event will feature nature and “five senses” scavenger hunts for children, local beekeeper and bee teacher, Andrew Crawford, and an opportunity for participants to help build a solar oven and to taste cookies baked by the sun.

The Peace Garden is glorious in the Spring – a botanical landscape of Native plants, herbs, fruit trees, and ornamental flowers and shrubs. This is a sanctuary of peace, habitat for birds, pollinators, and wildlife, and a place for contemplation and re-connecting with nature.

Little children will discover the garden through their senses with a scavenger hunt to guide them to find sounds, fragrances, colors, textures, shapes and critters. This will introduce them to a nature experience with their whole being. Older children will have a scavenger hunt that takes them through the garden to identify different species of plants.

Andrew Crawford, member of the Northern Arizona Organic Beekeepers Association, will have a top bar nucleus-hive used for attracting swarms, and answer questions about bee behavior, backyard beekeeping, bees in the big picture of food security, and Apitherapy, healing with bees, of which he is a certified practitioner.

There will be cookies baking in a solar oven and small cookie ovens that participants can help build. There will be lemonade to go with the cookies. This free event will be a fun way to connect with all the elements that make a natural garden thrive.
