Wright-Locke Farm Winter Solstice Celebration
December 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20
Maximum: 15 people Tiered Pricing: $10/15/20
The Winter Solstice is the day on which the midday sun is at its lowest point in the sky and it arrives this year on Wednesday, December 21, but we’ll celebrate on the Sunday before the solstice. The solstices mark key turning points in the year and have been celebrated by many cultures throughout history. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day (and the longest night) of the year. We’ll begin indoors with some solstice poetry, science and lore and then go for a walk around The Farm and into the woods beyond to celebrate the solstice season, learn a little about plants in their winter form and to enjoy the beauty of nature as winter approaches. The program will end around an outdoor fire with a cup of something hot. Children 10 years old and up are welcome to sign up with a registered adult.
