As part of the Orchard at Altapass SUPER SATURDAYS!, join well-known storyteller Sherry Lovett as she shares one of her favorite "plant" stories as participants design and create their own paper flower basket. Generations ago, kids would make these colorful flower holders and deliver them to neighbors, share them with their families, all in the spirit of friendship and love. Wonder what kind of basket you'll create? And itís all FREE. Parents are welcome, and all the materials are supplied by the Orchard.
And when the class is over, parents and kids can hike one of the ten walking trails around the Orchard and check out the General Store.
The Orchard at Altapass is located at 1025 Orchard Road in Spruce Pine, mile marker 328.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Open from 10 to 5PM, Wednesday-Sunday through October.
