The Haiku Spirit: Exploring Nature through Poetry
This Exploration Haiku Poetry Workshop will be led by Julia Grace, Multi Media Artist & Writer.
Come explore the spirit of haiku, a form of Japanese poetry almost inseparable from nature. Learn about the true essence of haiku and how it is so much more than the syllabic form poem we are taught in elementary school. Listen to a reading of haiku by the old masters and modern poets, and write your own haiku inspired by the gardens in winter and the Ikebana floral arrangements that will be on display in the Lecture Room, along with Japanese quilts on exhibit. Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil.
Cost: $25 members; $35 non-members. Pre-registration required.

More About Jenkins Arboretum
Jenkins Arboretum is a privately owned and operated natural arborteum that is open to the public free of charge 365 days per year. H. Lawrence Jenkins established the arboretum on his property as a memorial to his wife, Elisabeth Phillippe Jenkins, who was avid gardener. The Arboretum opened to the public in 1976. Views of the valley all the way to King of Prussia, as well as up-close views of nature can be seen along the 1.2 miles of paved pathways that wind through the 40+ acre site. The property features an education center that was finished in 2010 and five different garden areas, including Rhododendron Collection, Green Ribbon Native Plants®, The Woodland Garden, Wildflower Gardens and a Bog Garden
