Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

Thanks!

Kids in the Orchard–Plans for Week 1

I am so excited for the first day of Kids in the Orchard next week Wednesday, June 25th from 2 – 3:30!   I have a lot of exciting activities planned throughout the summer but some are a bit dependent on the weather.  I’ll be posting a few days in advance of each week about what the main ‘activity’ will be on that particular day so be sure to check the previous Saturday or Sunday. 

On June 25th our main project will be Fairy Gardens or Terrariums. 

I would love it if those participating could bring some sort of container for their fairy garden/terrarium.  It will be a take home project so remember you will have to lift it into your vehicle when your done.

Your garden container could be anything – an old slow cooker that doesn’t work…

The insert to that slow cooker…

an old crock or lunch box…

buckets, pails, big bowls, old pots, pans, or whatever your imagination dreams up!

I do have *some* containers that you would be able to purchase for just $3 if you can’t find one to use. 

The kids will be scavenging the orchard for items for there fairy gardens as well as making a little fairy house or bench from popsicle sticks.

We also have one more planting project planned but I’m going to keep it a secret until Wednesday!  AND Diane thought up a delicious treat using a product from our orchard for the kiddo’s to enjoy while they’re here!

Another idea for a container…

I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to fairy gardens as well so feel free to browse and be inspired before the 25th!

Check out the suitcase photo on that Interest board! So cute. I can see other metal items too: cookie tin, tackle box, lunch pail. How funny would it be to have a fairy garden in a kids' potty. I might need to make a fairy garden my-grownup-self now.
