From the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary
Winter Solstice Celebration

From this longest night, the days lengthen, so that even in the coldest time we can hope for more light. But like the seeds we must be patient and rest in anticipation of the burst of energy we will need come spring!
Please join the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary in marking the Winter Solstice at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday December 21 at the “Barn”
1200 Princess St. behind Providence Motherhouse.
Song, ritual and food will be shared. There is no cost for this event, but donations are always
