The Fire Circle: Volunteer Day in the Survivor’s Healing Garden at the Reverence Project

June 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - June 4, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

After our spring weeding, seeding and rain, the Survivor’s Healing Garden at the Reverence Project is in full superbloom! We hope you’ll join us among the poppies (and California lilac, and globemallow, and verbena…).

Our next four volunteer days will focus on building seating for our fire circle. This sacred space will host healing and community circles, harnessing the power of fire to amplify connection and joy. The love you bring to the work you do here will serve as a foundation for healing.

This is a free, hands-on opportunity to learn how to build SuperAdobe structures, a low-tech, low-cost, long-lasting, sustainable and increasingly popular architectural strategy. It’s fun! It’s easy! It’s dirty! The time it takes will depend a bit on the number of hands contributing, temperatures and precipitation. Here is what we expect:

Saturday, June 03: We may add more cobb mid-layer as needed. If the structure is ready, we’ll mix a lime/cement finish plaster, and trowel it on over the cob.

Sunday, June 04: We’ll mix a lime/cement finish plaster, and trowel it on over the cob. We’ll set some decorative tiles on the sides at this time.

If work in the blooms is what calls you, we’ll also continue weeding and seeding. We’ll provide light refreshments, some work gloves and tools, and great joy for your contributions to our space and work.

What to Bring

We need nothing beyond your hands and your hearts. If you are so inspired, we invite offerings of peace and light that can be integrated into the fire circle seating to honor the Watts community and support survivors’ healing. In keeping with the aesthetic and inspiration of our iconic Watts Towers, we would be particularly happy to give a permanent home to rocks, seashells, crystals, ceramic, or metal that is beyond its first use.

What to Wear

Please consider wearing a sun hat, sunscreen, and work gloves along with shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Water bottles are recommended! Your weeding and planting tools are also welcome.
