A New Leaf, a Reggio inspired Nature preschool located in Bellevue announces its 2nd Annual Bare Branches festival to take place from 10am until 2pm on Saturday, February 16 on the school campus at 7520 Charlotte Pike, Nashville, TN 37209. “It is a celebration of the great outdoors when the trees are bare with sleepy buds and dancing branches in winter. It is also a fundraiser for our school with fun activities open to all of Nashville's citizens. The theme revolves around all the wonderful things that one can enjoy doing with branches, trunks, and stems (crafts, building, music, sports, food), as well as promoting environmental education, sustainability, and play in community,” says Director, Helene Harvey. The festival will feature intimate concerts, face painting, hiking, tree identification, bird watching, games, painting on wood, beading, cooking on a fire, crafting (wands, snowpeople, walking sticks…), fort building, a multi-level obstacle course, treasure hunt, goat yoga, and more. Sustainability sessions will include composting, boot recycling, and repurposing materials into new percussion instruments. There will also be a block building challenge, a zip-line adventure assembled by the 2018 Tennessee Tree Climbing champion, and a silent auction. The price of admission will include many of the activities, while others will be ticketed. Admission also includes an all you can eat potluck hosted by parents of students and school staff.
