Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Last Call!!! May 13, Cullman: Native Plant Adventure

May 13
Native Plant Adventure

Edible & Medicinal Plants
Appropriate for ages 10 and up
1:00 - 2:00

Come early and volunteer!  The Cullman Native Plant Society can use some help.  Arrive around 9:00 a.m. with gloves, shovels, clothes to get dirty in, and a willing spirit.  Please make sure children are well supervised.  We want to be a help and not a hindrance!

Join Verna Gates, storyteller, naturalist, journalist, ethnobotanist on an outdoor adventure.  She will start the day by taking the younger kids through the native flora weaving a tale not to be believed.  She will follow this up on a more serious note teaching the older students about edible and medicinal uses of our native flora.

There is a limit of 30 participants for each program, so sign up quick.  The cost is per program.  You can do one program or both.  Please do note the ages for which these programs are appropriate.  If you have children in both programs, you can enjoy the play/picnic areas while your older children are participating in the second program.

Please contact Deb Spradlin at everestacademy1@gmail.com to RSVP.  Sign up, cancellation, and payment deadline is May 8.  Please make sure to let me know which class you want to participate in and how many spots.
