Description:Before the inventions of Velcro, zippers and nails, the world was held together with string and rope made from plants. In this workshop for ages 9 and up (children must be accompanied by an adult), we will experience the magic of cordage-making using a variety of native and garden plants, and see nets made from dogbane and iris vein fibers. This free program is made possible through a partnership between the Laguna Foundation, LandPaths and the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District. The District permanently protects the diverse agricultural, natural resource and scenic open space lands of Sonoma County for future generations. It is funded through a quarter-cent sales tax that was voted in by the residents of Sonoma County. Hot drinks and light snacks will be provided. Pre-register through LandPaths.
