inHarmony inNature gently walk and dwell on the unceded lands of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waultuth peoples. These lands, waters & skies are home to diverse Indigenous people, plants, rocks, animals, and many other beings, whom we recognize as vital contributors to our society.
A Distinct Love for Nature
Our intention is to co-create a common and diverse community where we could express our true nature.
inHarmony inNature Collective gathers projects, ideas, and people who are working at expanding our/theirs/yours/her/him relations in nature. A space to grow our love for Mother Earth, the Cosmos and everything that exists.
We intend to reflect and manifest a New Dream/Earth weave in community with all that exists. Our purpose is to co-create fluidity, ecology, cross pollination and collaboration.
BRINGING NATURE & CREATIVITY INTO OUR HOMES
At this time, when we have been called to live differently and our hearts are deeply touched by the lives affected by the Covid-19, In Harmony With Nature we stay committed to our intention on building a creative bridge between our community and nature.
We are inviting you to take those inward ideas, dreams, energy… and bring them outward into this new reality.
And with the arrival of the Spring Season, we trust we will keep connected through different online platforms. Visit our blog and watch our videos and photos on some of the plants we can find or grow in our gardens this time of the year. Mark your calendars with the events we are programming. Stay tune!
Nature walks honouring the plants and their medicines which are growing all around us; showcasing our native plants describing cultural usage, plant identification, how to grow in our own gardens, nutritional value and some practical applications. Outdoor walks will take place at Khanahmoot aka New Brighton Beach, Hastings community park and garden, at the Sanctuary and other neighbouring parks.
We will offer space to create either out at our chosen location or back at the Hastings Community Centre (weather dependent). Interactive workshops on plant identification and collaborating with other artists of various mediums to help co-create a unique reference book of flora and fauna knowledge for future generations. Copies of the art will be printed to publish a botanical art book. These workshops are inclusive of all ages and cultural background.
Special events to connect with the rhythms of nature. The invitation will be to the community to share potluck, local teas, music; to answer and ask questions to encourage conversation and offer guidance to create their own artwork inspired by local plants and their experience out at our parks.
