Introduction to Questing Workshop
Join master quest creator Peter Bidigare for an Introduction to Questing workshop at Sonoma Garden Park. Questing is a place-based educational and recreational activity. Quests are treasure hunts that celebrate community, natural history, cultural sites, stories, and the land on which they are created. Born out of a 150-year old tradition of "letterboxing" in southwest England, questing has become a hugely popular pastime, with hundreds of thousands of followers around the world. Quests are being incorporated into school curriculum, used as compelling interpretive tools to educate visitors at parks and museums, and communities are using quests to engage citizens, map community assets, and build social capital.

This hands-on workshop will teach participants how to design their own quest, and will also develop a quest at Sonoma Garden Park that will be a permanent feature of the park for the community to enjoy. The workshop will begin with a discussion on questing, quest fundamentals, and how to draft a quest. Participants will then work together to develop the route for the quest at Sonoma Garden Park, as well as the content for the activity. Workshop participants will be treated to snacks from the Garden Park but should bring their own lunch.

The workshop is suitable for teens and adults who are interested in learning more about how to create quests. The cost of the workshop is $20 for Sonoma Ecology Center members and $25 for non-members, which includes materials. All proceeds benefit Sonoma Garden Park, a working farm and model of sustainable agriculture, managed by Sonoma Ecology Center. Sonoma Garden Park was a gift from Pauline Bond, and is located at 19996 Seventh Street East, between MacArthur and Denmark Streets in Sonoma.

This workshop is limited to 20 people, and participants are asked to bring a lunch, refillable water bottle, sun hat, and sunscreen.
