Celebrate Winter Solstice at Spring Ridge Commons this afternoon Sunday, December 21st from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. At Bee in the Garden, we will have a small live potted Christmas tree decorated with beautiful salt dough glittering stars and will have tea made from herbs and plants from the garden and perhaps even some sweet treats (chestnuts, tangerine oranges, ....). The volunteer activity will be taking the rocks out of the Native Plant Garden and the Garry Oak Meadow and placing these rocks elsewhere in the Commons to delineate pathways.

Over the past seven years,  Lotus Johnson has documented Spring Ridge Commons with 350 + pictures on Flikr.   The reason why she does this is to show people the intense beauty that there is at Spring Ridge Commons.  What she sees in the Commons is an up-swelling of growth, an up-swelling of beauty….."I think that people need to open up their heart to the beauty that the Commons represents"
