About this workshop
Voices from the Land is an exploration and celebration of oral and written language as well as natural science, art, performance and technology. Taught by experienced teachers, workshop participants experience all aspects of a Voices project integrating visual, written, digital and dramatic arts!
In partnership with GreenUP and with support from the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, we will be hosting this immersive, two-day workshop at the beautiful GreenUP Ecology Park in Peterborough, Ontario.
For more than 20 years, GreenUP has been central and eastern Ontario's leading organization focused on issues of environmental education, sustainability, and stewardship. A registered charity, they partner with individuals, businesses, other non-profit organizations and governments to ensure that the region maintains its long standing track record of environmental leadership in Ontario and across Canada.
GreenUP Ecology Park is a five acre showcase of sustainable landscape ideas and resources. With a host of display gardens and naturalized areas, a native plant nursery, children's programs, garden market, skill-building workshops and hands-on displays, the park has everything you need to be a good steward of the land in your care. This unique, award-winning centre is an ecological adventure for the whole family, staffed from May through October. Bring a picnic and explore the park, pick up some compost or plants for your garden, or roll up your sleeves and get involved!
