Join artist in residence Jenna Knapp and poet KP Kaszubowski for an afternoon of walking and writing together during their third interactive poetry workshop at the garden. As Earth Day approaches, we will continue to honor and celebrate the life of the Norway maple that long provided shade and shelter at the top of the hill overlooking the labyrinth.

April invites us to celebrate the earth and take notice of all the slow and beautiful moments in nature that are always waiting for us, despite our fast-paced lives. In this third iteration of Actively Missing You we will continue to explore themes of grief, change and loss--this time through the lens of our relationship to the places that make us and how their ever-changing landscape changes us.

During the workshop, we will discuss the labyrinth's history, silently walk its winding path, and use poetry prompts to generate more written material. There will be time to share and reflect together as a group, and you'll have the option to contribute your writing to be engraved into the logs at a later date, allowing the Norway maple's history to live on.

Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of writing experience. We will spend part of this workshop in the labyrinth and part inside the studio. Wear comfortable clothes for the spring weather, and bring your own writing materials, beverages, and snacks for the afternoon.
