Native Gardens PCPA Play Solvang

Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners. Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all- out war of taste, class, privilege, and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.

The first 10 kids to register will receive a free copy!  Summary:   From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice.

Under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain, he listens and he follows.

The Magnitude of the Problem: Wildfire in Beloved Places

Join us via Zoom on Thursday, September 15th, 4 - 5 p.m. for a virtual presentation with Suze Woolf, artist, and Lorena Williams, author and former wildland firefighter, as they discuss their work featured in the Wildling’s current exhibition, Fire & Ice: Our Changing Landscape, and wildfire in general.

Fire & Ice: Our Changing Landscape, Installation view, 2022.

Suze Woolf has been painting burned-over landscapes and large individual portraits of burned trees from all over the West for the last 14 years. Woolf’s fabric installation, “The Magnitude of the Problem,” on view at the Wildling is a version of the largest one yet, at 21 1/2 feet.

Wildfire fighters call fire-carved standing snags “totems.” These totems—each ridge and fissure a landscape unto itself—have become an apt metaphor for the climate crisis. In a sad and symbolic irony, Lorena’s essay—which evokes the threat to the famous Mariposa grove of giant sequoias last year—was once again a reality in the Washburn fire less than two months ago.
