wreath workshopThe Home Hardware holiday wreath making workshop brought out the creative gifts of our talented valley folk and resulted in some beautiful, festive wreaths. 
The scent of greenery – pine, fir, juniper and cedar filled the air adding to the festive season. Pynelogs rang with laughter and busy conversations as people discussed holiday plans. 
Groundswell was careful to prune only where the forest wanted them and in such a way as to encourage new growth next year. The trees and bushes shared their bounty and we gave thanks. 


Celebrate the Season with your own special touches…
