“Full and overflowing” Pearson’s Falls classes continue

Published 10:39pm Tuesday, September 17, 2013

The first of three fall classes held at Pearson’s Falls on Sept. 10 was “full to overflowing,” according to Tryon Garden Club docent coordinator, Annie Ewing.

“Everybody was really fascinated,” Ewing said of the medicinal plants and shrubs class led by internationally-known herbalist June Ellen Bradley, which included making a “healing poultice for insect bites.”

The second in the three-class series will be “Practice your skills with Phil” on Sept. 25 at 1:30 p.m. at Pearson’s Falls. Phil Nisbet, who previously taught at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center and Isothermal Community College, will lead the 90-minute class on native plants at the glen.

The class is limited in size and expected to fill quickly based on the popularity of the first class of the season. For more information and to obtain a registration form, call Pearson’s Falls at 828-749-3031 or visit www.pearsonsfalls.org.
