During this song-filled workshop, Ruth draws from her work as a songwriter, performer, recording artist, public speaker, educator, community organizer, and arts manager and conveys the message that the job of being an artist requires being good at one’s art form as well as in all of the skills that we learn in school--writing, reading, math, communicating, negotiating, problem-solving, and many more.

Jasmine & the audience do their best to soothe her fears & assure her that worms are busy beneath the surface making new dirt. Worm poop, after all, makes the best soil. Butterfly, ladybug, & worm puppets have guest appearances as they eat, poop, & wander through the flowers.
