Workshop participants will get a crash course on the fundamentals of the centuries-old form of micro poetry known as Haiku, and create a haiku rock (like kindness rocks but with haiku instead!) to place in our Haiku Garden or take home. Led by Babs McGrory, creator of Pi-ku Poetry (Bite Sized Poems to Help Fight Hunger). All workshop materials will be provided. This event takes place outdoors with social distancing. Participants must bring their own chair and wear a mask.
