Another Walk in the Woods

  1. 1. Another Walk in the Woods this time at The John C. Campbell Folk School One Folk School Road Brasstown, North Carolina, US 28902-9603 www.folkschool.org   by Robert Connolly rcnnolly@memphis.edu rcnnolly.wordpress.com    
  2. 2. The Plan . . . . . . Our trip to the Folk School served our need to get out of town. Friends had gone to the school before and spoke highly of the place. Five-day classes are offered on a diversity of activities including blacksmithing, woodturning, painting, writing, and my choice – nature studies. My intent was to go for a walk in the woods with someone who knew a good bit more than me about trees and plants. As I often note, to me there are magnolia trees, pine trees, and everything else. My knowledge of plants is equally as extensive. I wanted to broaden my limited floral horizons. Our very knowledgeable instructor, Joel Zachry (www.gowithgoat.com) did not disappoint our small group of five students.
