White Violet Center for Eco-Justice

Thursday, 16 January, 2014 @ 08:45 AM - 02:00 PM |

Join us for a tour of The White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence at St. Mary-of-the-Woods. Their ministry focuses on fostering a way of life that respects the interdependence of all Creation. The tour will include a discussion of the ministry, its history with the Sisters of Providence, its gardens and alpaca herd, and a brief video presentation on perspectives on the environment. Tour the working rooms of the Center, including the weaving rooms, the fiber processing areas, and a yarn spinning demonstration. Weather permitting, we will go outside and visit the alpaca herd. Purchases from the gift shop are welcomed. Bring money for lunch after our tour.

We will depart from EIU Blair Hall at 8:45 a.m.
