Join Queerly ME, in collaboration with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, for a beginner level guided flower crown making workshop for LGBTQ+ folks and allies! Learn how to weave natural materials together into your personal flower crown, which plants are best for construction, and the ecosystem pollinators that make this workshop possible. This workshop will be led by Hedda Campbell.
Hedda Campbell (she/her) is the proprietor of Primal Blossoms – landcrafting & plantcare which is based out of Portland, ME. She has a background in horticulture, art and design and can sometimes be seen creating floral art for weddings and local businesses. She has a passion for getting pals out in nature to explore their creativity!
To celebrate Pride Month this year, we’re teaming up with our friends at Queerly ME to host a four-part series of Queer and LGBTQ+ outdoor events!
Queerly ME is a Queer Centered LGBTQ+ start-up non-profit dedicated to Queer Visibility, Accessibility, and Community Connection across Maine. Established 2020, Queerly ME intends to create spaces online and offline where LGBTQ+ folks can gather and connect in safe, healing social environments. Follow them on Instagram @_queerlyme or visit their website www.queerlyme.org.
The intention of this space is to acknowledge Queerness and create a safe space to exist as Queer – anyone who supports Queerness as allies or LGBTQIA+ is also welcome. Queerly ME defines Queerness as “fluidity in one’s gender or sexuality outside of a more binary LGBT+ identity. A Queer person can identify as only Queer or choose to define themself as both Queer and other identities within the LGBTQ+ community.”
