Rivers Day Event with CNV

Last month the City of North Vancouver asked me to be part of their Rivers Day event at Lynnmouth Park. It was an afternoon of planting with tons of games, community displays, music and of course upcycling.

This dog was very suspicious of me and my crafty mojo.

And of course Tom from Urban Repurpose was there to spread the repurposing love.

Shideh from the North Vancouver City Library rode Spokes 'N' Words to the event. Spokes 'N' Words is a tricycle with a cabinet on the rear where users are able to check-in and check-out library books and materials, get a library card, participate in storytimes, and receive information about library programs and services.

Here's the team of volunteers who planted 1,000 native plants. Wow!

I was there to craft with volunteers... We made plantable DIY paper out of old newspapers and scrap paper.

I didn't have too many participants pop by but the ones who did were very happy crafters.

We used cookie cutters to make shapes then added seeds.

The event also included ceremonial tree planting... The kids were very happy to dig, get dirty then help plant the tree.

It was nice to reconnect with old coworkers from the City of North Vancouver!

This is how much was planted in the afternoon. Amazing!

Thanks for including me in the event Angela! And thanks to all my fellow community builders and paper makers... We made magic happen!
