Button Farm Living History Center
November 7, 2021, 8am-8pm
Engaged Ecology will host their Fall Community Gathering at Button Farm Living History Center on November 7th! Button Farm stewards 35 acres in Seneca Creek State Park and is committed to helping people understand life on a 19th century slave plantation and The Underground Railroad through hands-on activities.
Engaged Ecology is a team of educators, gardeners, naturalists, and artists based in Silver Spring, Maryland, who have come together to bridge nature and community. Our services include planting gardens with communities, nature immersion experiences, community events, and trainings.
The intention of Engaged Ecology is to create a space that integrates personal and ancestral experiences of nature and agriculture.
During the gathering Engaged Ecology will hear stories from Anthony Cohen, the visionary curator of Button Farm, practice mindful yoga and Qigong, go on an immersive nature walk with awareness games and foraging, and plant in the living history garden. In the evening Mallory Combemale of the Inheritance Project will guide the community to weave and process our personal experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives. We will finish with storytelling and uplifting music around the fire under the night sky. *Camping included on Saturday night!*
