Garden of Self Care

October 14 | 6-7:30 pm

Join us for a peer-led workshop to honor self-care. Self-care is an essential step in the healing and self-empowerment process. It not only encourages us to connect with ourselves but also helps us be present and whole for our communities. In this workshop, you will be invited to create and nurture your inner garden by using art as a way to connect, embrace, and empower yourself.  Starting Sep. 16, follow weekly self-care videos on our social media, that will lead up to our evening of self-care in October. (Ages 16+)
