What is DIY?  


Do-It-Yourself (or DIY) has grown to become quite the 21st century phenomenon. This a hands-on approach to learning, making and experiencing. It certainly seems like a practice that can connect people with nature and each other, and the lessons both have to offer. Wehr’s twist on DIY will take the shape of hands-on workshops where staff or local experts will share their trade and work with attendees to sample, create, and enjoy. All DIY Workshops include refreshments, materials and take-home items. Sessions are planned for March and December. Bring your friends or come to meet new people. DIY is laid back, fun, unique experience! Join us!
