A (Tu B'shvat) Nature Pop-Up @ Yerba Buena Gardens / San Francisco, CA

Celebrate Tu B’shvat, referred to as the birthday for the trees, with a multi-faceted mindfulness experience to deepen our connection to nature and a live earth art installation with artist Day Schildkret.

Come witness Day build a large-scale and live earth art installation, put down your prayers for the environment and nature, participate in a Q&A with Day and then help him deconstruct the entire art piece and spread the prayers, akin to a Tibetan sand mandala.

*This pop-up is inspired by Tu B’shvat, a holiday growing in significance, which marks the “New Year of the Trees” and invites to deepen our commitments to embodied spirituality and environmental stewardship.
