The Solstice Seed Mandala creation is an annual community art-making event to celebrate the coming of the winter season. At 10am, join storyteller Regina Ress for family friendly stories celebrating the Solstice. At 11am, we will gather for the creation of a Mandala made of different kinds of grains and seeds. Each December, the Open Space Visitor Center hosts the creation of a Mandala made of different kinds of grains and seeds. Volunteers contribute to the design and help to build the Mandala. The seeds serve to feed migratory birds such as Canada geese and Sandhill cranes. The Mandala remains in place for one week. Materials for the Mandala consist of seeds and grains which can be eaten by birds, composted or can quickly biodegrade. “A mandala is...An integrated structure; organized around a unifying center” Longchenpa. Please call 897-8831 for more information about this year’s Mandala project.
