Johnston County Cooperative Events Nov-Dec
11/8 - Orchard Planting
Arboretum Grounds - 11:00-4:00 pm - FREE
We'll assemble on the Great Lawn of the Arboretum from 11:00 to 12:00 for the ceremonial planting of the orchard. (In case of rain, we'll meet in the auditorium lobby.)
Volunteers will plant the remainder of 43 trees between noon and 3:00 in the orchard. The day will end with a public workshop on planting trees. Workshop starts at 3:00.
The ceremony is a great opportunity to celebrate our tremendous efforts toward winning an orchard. Additionally, it will give you the chance to help spread the word about our wonderful Arboretum and the other good work done by the College in our community.
11/9 - Fruits and Berries with Shawn Banks, Johnston County Cooperative
Arboretum Mobile Unit - 6:30-8:30 pm - $15. From apples and
pears to grapes and blackberries, join Shawn as we learn about the
various species of fruits and berries that we can easily grow on our
own property. Shawn will also cover insect and disease issues for
fruit species covered.
11/30 - Soap Crafting 101 with Lin Frye
Arboretum Brick Building - 6:00-8:00 pm - $35. Back by popular
demand, this 'hands-on', class will discuss various soap making
methods, focusing on glycerin 'melt and pour' as participants create
their own soaps. Each guest will finish with two pounds of delightfully
fragranced, moisture-rich, unique soaps. Classes fill quickly.
12/7 - Wreath Making with Natural Materials
Arboretum Brick Building - 2:00-4:00 pm - $20. North Carolina
gardens, backyards and roadsides can be a virtual 'paradise' of
plant materials all suitable to create your own unique, interesting
and fragrant wreath. This 'hands-on' workshop will cover the most
suitable materials for wreath making, how to weave these materials
into attractive wreaths. Each participant will leave with a beautiful,
creative, and festive wreath ready for door-hanging.
