#Treasuring Strathcona: Artists’ Share

Last week Treasuring Strathcona had the pleasure of joining Amy Walker for Artists’ Share at the Community Centre. We spent a joyful afternoon stitching on cloth that was collaboratively dyed & printed with plants harvested from the Strathcona Community Garden.

Passersby also added to an ongoing leaf rubbing project that holds botanical impressions from plants growing in the Strathcona and Cottonwood Community Gardens as well as MacLean Park and the eastern part of the neighbourhood. Plants tell us so much about the place we live in, they speak to the cultural and ecological complexity of this neighbourhood, from cedar, to tansy, to bamboo.
