West Side Community Organization (WSCO) invites our neighbors to Good Hearts Gatherings - a summer series of music, movement, spirituality, and connection.
Saturday mornings at 10am!
We'll be gathering at the Garden of Good Hearts, a community garden on Wabasha between Isabel St. and Congress St., across from Bootstrap Coffee Roasters.
Various healing arts including Tai Chi, meditation, healing circles, dance, drum circles, and more. New activities will be added regularly! Check back here for updates to the calendar.
Invite your friends via our Facebook event page!
