Family Discovery Days

Join us on SATURDAY, August 12th for a morning of family fun in nature!

The theme for August 12th is A Peaceful Day in the Cove!  We will have lots of activities and crafts that are about peace and finding peace in nature and the Farmstead Cove!! 

All of us are lifelong learners - from the newest baby to the wisest grandparent and everyone in between. As we explore the natural world, we gain a better understanding of the Earth and our place in the continuum of life. When we participate in that exploration with others, we also build memories as we develop deeper connections with our community.

In an effort to strengthen the connections of family and community, and as a testament to the value of lifelong learning, Asheville Farmstead holds monthly Family Discovery Days - free learn-and-play events for all ages. Learn the skills of a naturalist, create art in nature, play in dirt and water, try your hand at growing new plants, and build new relationships. Bring your family and your sense of adventure!

WHO: All ages, all families!

WHAT: A day at the Farmstead with other kids and parents. We'll tour the farm, play in the field and explore the forest. Come ready to learn something new and discover the world around you!

WHERE: 218 Morgan Cove Road Candler, NC 28715

WHEN: Once a month on Saturday. Next one is August 12th!  10am-12noon. Bring a picnic lunch for afterward.

PRICE: FREE!!!! No registration required. But feel free to comment on our Facebook page saying that you're coming!
