This month we launched our new community project NATURAL MAGIC. Carey Douglass Carnegie is project manager on this exciting project will be inter-generational and will deliver a range of workshops, tea and cakes, linking the two amazing community gardens and natural space in Dunbar. We are working in collaboration with The Ridge and Sustaining Dunbar and aiming to use creativity to show how nature is magic and encourage all ages to share their stories, their experiences of nature, of growing, of growing up in this amazing natural environment we share – the same playground enjoyed by John Muir in his boyhood.
We began with a wonderful mindfulness workshop held amid the natural smells, textures and sounds of the beach. Emma Vance, of Relax Kids, worked with the After School Club and the children responded so well to the experience. Further dates and workshops will be posted soon and we are working towards a shared exhibition – to be held at the Bleachingfield Community Centre on 10November.
More coming soon!
