      READING, RECYCLING, AND RADICALISM! FREE SUMMER SERIES BLOOMS
      West Asheville co-op offers eight ecological events including read alouds and natural crafts

      ASHEVILLE, NC (June 2019) – Firestorm Books & Coffee is excited to announce children’s summer programming taking place at the bookstore from July 6th through August 24th 2019, with an event every Saturday at 10:30am. The programming rotates each week between read alouds and arts and crafts events, all of which are focused on local ecology, using natural materials to make art, recycling and upcycling, and gardening.

      The aim of this programming is to give participants a better understanding of and appreciation for nature, empower them with tools to utilize natural materials, and encourage a more diverse and accessible relationship to the natural world. Every participant has the chance to collect a stamp for each event they attend, with the opportunity to turn in a full stamp card for a free book! Read aloud themes include Animals, Outdoor Adventures, and Anarchy (the children’s summer programming culminates at the Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair (acab2019.noblogs.org), taking place in West Asheville August 23rd to 25th). The arts and crafts projects include making a recycled container garden, making a nature journal, a natural dye workshop, and using dried flowers and leaves to create Nature Wheels.

      These events are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Please plan on accompanying your child to the events. All materials will be provided, including a snack. Detailed dates and times listed below.
