Natural Indigo Dyeing Workshop
Time: 10am-1pm
Location: Abbey Gardens
Not too many things have captured the hearts of people the world over for nearly 3000 years. Indigo, the blue dye derived from the leaves of isatis tinctoria, is one of those things. In this workshop, Anna will share with you the magical process of combining indigo with fermented brewer's malt (courtesy of Haliburton Highlands Brewing) and ash water to produce (within minutes!) a colour bluer than the beautiful Haliburton sky in summer. Extend your knowledge of tie dye to include other Japanese resist techniques "shibori" and come away with a silk scarf reminiscent of a sparkling lake or a rushing river. With an entire continent named after it, how could indigo NOT be wonderful!? Join us for this unique workshop on Saturday May 21st from 10am-1pm at Abbey Gardens. Cost is $50 which includes lunch and a hand-dyed silk scarf (made by you!) Register online at abbeygardens.ca, call 705 754 4769 or email Cara at cara@abbeygardens.ca.

Remembering Pete Seeger with Spook Handy
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Minden United Church
The following is from Spook's website: I had the fortune of performing over 50 concerts and festivals alongside Pete Seeger between 2003 and his passing in 2014. As a result, I have learned many of his songs and the stories behind them – and not only songs he wrote but those of Woody Guthrie and many others. He was a mentor to me not only of music but of how to be a decent human being. I attribute much of what I know about songwriting and performing to him. The "Remembering Pete Seeger" concert is a collection of songs and stories Spook Handy learned directly from Pete plus a few originals that he wrote himself that in some way have Pete's stamp on them. It is Spook's goal to bring this tribute concert to all 50 U.S. states, all 13 Canadian provinces and territories, all 21 New Jersey counties, and as many other countries around the world as possible by May 3rd 2017, which would have been Pete's 98th birthday.

Logging History in Haliburton County
Time: 10:00 am

Haliburton County's heritage includes a robust logging industry.

Though there were thousands of such chutes around Ontario, this is now the last of its kind. With the guidance of a volunteer from the Stanhope Museum, we'll take a tour of the Chute, and hike the surrounding trails. Dress for the weather, bring your camera, and pack a picnic lunch if you like. There are tables available near the riverside. Cost: $5 per adult, kids free with paid adult Location: Hawk Lake Log Chute (click here for a map), Big Hawk Lake Rd., Carnarvon Leader: Bill Forbes, Stanhope Heritage Discovery Museum This event is part of the Hike Haliburton Festival!

Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
