August, with the long nights and the locust’s songs, was running very fast!
Quick information about our main activities :
We started with our first workshop of Dragon Dreaming this summer. Dragon dreaming is a way to collaborate all together and have the same objectives for Open Mind.
We started with a presentation of everybody. Who we are and what we’ve done before to come in Bulgaria. The point was to know us better. Then we talked about the different steps of the Dragon Dreaming : Dreaming, Planning, Doing and Celebrating. Nice moment spent with the team with a lot of sincerity and kindness.In October, we will do our second workshop.
During the summer, two of them woke up around 5am to water the garden. In Chipka, the water from the river is linked with the houses. We digged some paths in our garden to connect the watering system with the main points of our garden. There is of course the vegetable garden but also all the trees in the garden to water.
To not buy new sponges at home, Ophelie created Tawashi Sponges with old clothes. The best way to create is to use old socks. We know that you are like us and you lose every time your second sock. So now, don’t put it in the bin, and reuse to do Tawashi sponges. You can find more information here :
Open Mind participated to this beautiful festival in the mountains of Rhodopes. Tatyana and Rada animated a workshop for Children and explained to them how to loom.
