Knitting Party at Robinson Rough Cabin

Date:  Saturday, January 12th
Time:  Starting at 10:00 am
Cost: $10 for non-members, free for members
Group Size: This outing is limited to 15 participants due to size of cabin

Nestled in the steep slopes of the Sandy Mush farming community sits SAHC’s Robinson Rough cabin. Surrounded by 248 acres of SAHC conserved land this cabin is a world apart from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It is in this cabin we will hold our first SAHC Knitting Party on Saturday, January 12th. Participants will be treated to a warm, cozy space to knit as well as an opportunity to learn about the history of Robinson Rough and SAHC’s role in conserving the Sandy Mush farming community. Participants are welcomed to bring their needles, yarn, and knitting projects for an afternoon of coziness and merriment. Brownies and other refreshments will be served and the aroma of mulled wine will fill the air.

This party will be B.Y.O.B and B.Y.O.Y (Bring your own yarn)

Volunteer crew transforms exotic invasives into hand-wrought works of art

The crew worked for a majority of the day cutting humongous invasive oriental bittersweet vines on SAHC’s newly-acquired Robinson Rough
property.

Robinson Rough is a 248-acre property near the Sandy Mush Township in northwestern Buncombe County, NC. 216 of these acres consist of steep, craggy forestland that continues all the way up to a high-elevation ridge that is visible from downtown Asheville. The lower 32 acres contain a series of rustic cabins and scenic open pastures. SAHC was able to purchase the Robinson Rough property in late-2011 with the help of an eager seller. Read more
