Gathering from outdoors is best done early morning after plants have rested & gathered dew at night after Heat of day, with cool or dark place to rest in a bucket/pitcher of clean water at home until workshop

You may attend the workshop whether you make something or not. Listeners/observers welcome to participate as such.
Don’t let the preparation list be an obstacle, given COVID limitations on getting out & about. Buying or cutting materials yourself are both fine.

A note about the "donation based" offerings:
For some of our teachers, sharing their time with others is how they make a living, and we feel strongly that we need to support them as much as possible. Please make an offering to either the presenter or to KCL Family Camp Council so we can be sure we compensate teachers for their time, magic and skill.
