Earth Exchange with Bumbleberry Wellness

  • Shannon Terrace Day Use area 13931 Woodpath Rd SW Calgary, AB, T2W 5R4 Canada (map)

Join our friends at Bumbleberry Wellness on June 23rd to create an act of Radical Joy at the site of the Ring Road Construction in Fish Creek Park.

This is one of many global events where people come together to share their stories and create beauty in wounded places (either touched by human development or other disasters).

An Earth Exchange is part storytelling, part community action, part healing work, part artistic expression, part ceremony and part play. It is not to judge, blame or protest. Rather, it is to receive beauty from a place that is spoiled while it receives creativity and compassion from the people who care about it.

We will meet at the first parking lot on the way to the Shannon Terrace Day Use area followed by a 10 minute walk* to the site of the Ring Road Construction. There will be an opportunity to share stories about the place, explore it as it is now and reconvene as a group to create an act of beauty.

* please wear suitable shoes for walking, the route includes a short section of narrow grass pathway and there is gravel at the construction site. Alternate arrangements can be made for anyone with mobility issues, please don't hesitate to ask!
