Wordplay and wit will sprout as guests enjoy nature-inspired activities when they take A Walk in the Words at Bedrock Gardens in Lee, supported by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities. Over two days in September, visitors can explore the Word Garden, participate in the Shape Poetry Slam, express their impressions through Haiku, build Once-Upon-a-Time Stories, take part in What a Garden Means to Me, or enjoy and reflect on readings by the Poets in the Garden, David Ferry, Gary Whited, and University of New Hampshire Professor of English Diane Freedman, who helped the Friends of Bedrock Gardens plan the project. The ever-popular storyteller Rebecca Rule kicks off the weekend at 10:30 am Saturday. Bedrock Gardens is recognized locally and nationally for its unique combination of whimsy, sculpture from recycled materials, landscape architecture, and commitment to sustainability. See the schedule of events to the right, and please join us in the garden! For more information, please visit www.bedrockgardens.org.
