The 5th annual Living Lab Do It Yourself (DIY) Holiday Festival, held in the Annex during MP on December 11, put students and staff in the holiday mood. Put on by student Eco Leaders, the event is designed to encourage more sustainable holiday activities, such as making your own gifts and decorations. Students also decorated and enjoyed gingerbread and sugar cookies with a variety of colored icing and sprinkles and hot cider.
There were a variety of DIY activities to choose from, including making swags or wreaths from redwood boughs and other native plants cut in the Living Lab, ornaments made from Living Lab pine cones and acorns, dream catchers featuring Living Lab chicken feathers (donated through the natural molting process!) and holiday paper crafts made with old library books.
