  3. Very cool day at Temporary Services’ Self Reliance Library talking about sticks! With uses ranging from fire-starting, tree-grafting, shelter-building, weapons, marshmallow roasting, guessing the future/finding the truth/finding water (divining and dousing)— we came to the conclusion that sticks are pretty amazing little appendages. We also came to the conclusion that if you know what to look for in a stick— bud scars, bundle scars, lenticles, pith, cambium, buds— you’ll have a good shot of appreciating the fact that even in the dead of winter, nature is doing some splendid things… 

    So, here’s to ecstatic spring blooms from those ecstatic sticks!

    Thanks again to Philadelphia Mural Arts and Pafa for hosting, and for all our stick-loving attendees for coming out and growing and sharing your knowledge!
