All Hands on Earth

Come sit with the Earth, the sun, and Naropa’s Beautiful Sycamore tree for two hands-on workshops with take-home goodies! These workshops will enable you to continue the sacred activism work of relationship with land and speaking up for all beings that have been victim to climate injustice!

Seed Bombs Workshop

Seed Dumpling (otherwise known as seed bombs) workshop led by Salem McGilloway, all materials provided! Get your hands dirty and learn this easy process to bring some guerrilla gardening to your community! Walk away with a dumpling of Native Colorado Wildflower and Pollinator Habitat seeds that are planted simply by throwing onto the Earth.

“Seed bombs are the main weapon guerrilla gardeners can use to spread flowers in bare spots, creating pockets of beauty and habitats for pollinators. Not strictly legal but filed away by the authorities under the category of “What’s not to like.”

Seed bombs are best, and the most fun, when thrown into neglected roundabouts, central reservations, flower beds, and planters; lob a bomb from a bicycle, a car window, or when passing on foot.

Seed bombing is best done in spring and autumn. Or, time your attack to coincide with heavy rainfall.

Targets for seed bombing should not be parks and other people’s gardens. Instead, rescue neglected planters and flower beds as well as civic spaces to which the planting plan has long been lost.

Now is the time to fight the good fight, says Alex Mitchell: “Urbanites the world over are looking at public green spaces around their homes with a new sense of responsibility and pride.”

Screen Printing Workshop

Screen Print Shirt workshop led by Madison Cartaya in partnership with Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center, all materials provided OR feel free to bring your own fabric that you’d like printed! We will have shirts available to print and take home, or you can use the printing materials to add messages that promote human rights and climate justice to any fabric (make your own flag, liven up some old jeans, add to your patchwork jacket).

“Get creative in this interactive Nonviolent Direct Action Art Training! Join us as we come together to learn creative, fun, and effective ways to use art to promote social and societal change. Art is an essential part of social movements – art creates lasting images that convey our messages in visually and emotionally compelling ways, to win hearts and minds in our calls for change. Come ready to get playful and build community, and be sure to bring clothes you don’t mind getting paint on! We will have interactive screen printing stations set up, so everyone will leave with a DIY piece of social movement art to take home!”
