Holiday Wreathmaking Hikes & Workshops

Greensgathering Hike & Wreathmaking

Sun Dec 3 12:45-1:45 greengathering (optional) 2-4 wreathmaking

Two options. Come at 12:45 if you want to collect your own greens and cones.  Or come at 2 if you just want to make a wreath without hiking.

On the hike you can gather evergreens: Eastern hemlock, white pine and mountain laurel plus pine cones and winter berries (season permitting).  Return to Brown Lane barn and enjoy tea and cookies while you learn to fashion a lovely, long lasting holiday wreath.  Everyone leaves with a beauty!!  Makes a wonderful gift for someone else too!  Bring your own clippers if you have them. We’ll supply the wreath rings and wire.  Register online. $25/$22 members. Register online at www.beaverbrook.org
