Unwind the Vines & make Earth Day Spheres

We planned multiple community events during the month of April to create Earth Day Spheres from vines pulled out of our park trees. Locals helped in several different ways by joining us in the Park to cut the vines. We then took the vines to the Children's Museum and Phipps Garden Center where we held workshops to teach you how to make spheres. Below you'll find a list of our workshops!

Our Goal

At And Flowers we are committed to bringing communities together for a common cause. We are so excited to present our Earth Day Spheres. We are leading groups of volunteers to remove invasive vines from City trees in Highland Park and Springhill Greenway. Our goal is to raise awareness, help the trees and make Earth Day Spheres from the invasive vines. 

How can I help? Consider volunteering email kktoole@ me.com or donating to our cause here. 

Who, Where, and How

We're excited to have a few different groups involved in our Earth Day celebration. In April, we will take groups out to remove invasive vines from city trees. These vines will help us to create unique spheres in a collaborative workshop. Find out who's involved here.

You! The Pittsburgh Community

Workshops to make vine spheres will be held at two Pittsburgh locations for locals' convenience, including the Phipps Garden Center and The Children's Museum.

Workshops will be held April 16th and April 23rd, 10:00am-1:00pm

These spheres are fun for all to make! We hope you'll make two, one to keep and one donate to be displayed as reminder of what we can accomplish together. 

We are working on how to sign up to help. In the meantime email me at kktoole@me.com

Thank you, Karen
