Junior Appalachian Musicians

JAM Fiddle Class, June 2017

In April of this year, we launched the Shakori Hills JAM chapter, covering Silk Hope, Siler City Elementary, Virginia Cross Elementary and Chatham Middle Schools. Over 30 students were given low to no-cost musical instruction in fiddle, mandolin, guitar and dance! This starter group will re-convene at the beginning of the school year for another 8-week session with their first performance at the Fall Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival.

 Community Garden

Want to grow your own food but don’t have the space or time commitment for your own20160620_125037 garden? Community garden workers get a share of everything harvested and excess is donated to the CORA Food Pantry. You can contribute as much or as little as meets your schedule and energy level. Everyone is welcome to participate in the garden, from the early planning stages like deciding what crops to grow, ordering seeds and tilling the ground to planting, weeding, mulching and harvesting. No previous gardening experience is necessary.

Cheryl is also offers free monthly gardening workshops every summer in a variety of topics for those who have their own gardens or just want to swap knowledge and experience! Send us an email if you’d like to have your own custom workshop!

Thank you for all your support! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Your contributions will help us reach our vision of giving back to our community by making the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center a place for everyone to enjoy now and for decades to come! Click here to make a donation.
