Wander through the eucalypts and write haiku with local poet, Sarah St Vincent Welch during Canberra Tree Week.
A haiku is a three-line poem, originating in Japan, but also popular in English. A Volunteer Guide will provide insights about the eucalypts in the Gardens as you explore your creativity.
Sarah has facilitated creative writing in the Canberra community for decades and loves hearing people’s stories and encouraging playfulness with words. She encourages fellow writers to have fun and enjoy nature (especially trees).
Please bring along papers, pen or pencils, and something to lean on while writing.
