sunflower10th Anniversary of Hickory Nut Forest and Laughing Waters

On Saturday, August 30th, 2014, we will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Hickory Nut Forest and Laughing Waters. When we began this project back in 2004, we had no idea it would evolve into what it has become now. We want to invite all who have had a hand in creating the place, our neighbors, and all the folks who have enjoyed being here to join us to remember this journey and celebrate what we are today.

Join us for an Open House and other activities:

· Tour Laughing Waters
· See our gristmill/waterwheel restoration with new grinding stones
· Enjoy the grounds: the rainbow trout pond, the creek, the Peace Path
· See the working micro-hydro turbine powering Laughing Waters from Hickory Nut Creek
· Pick organic apples in our orchard
· Help make apple cider
· Drive through Hickory Nut Forest past the four solar/green homes
· Hike miles of trails including a new trail to Little Bearwallow Mountain waterfall and cliff

Time: 1-4 pm
Location: 3963 Gerton Highway, Gerton, NC 28735
Event is free
Apples are $5 for a bag of 30 apples or $10 for 75. (proceeds are used to help maintain the orchard)
