The spring harvest is coming in and we have already taken 28 pounds of greens and radishes to Manna Food Bank for our neighbors in need. We have also been harvesting snow peas and sugar snap peas. Most of the summer crop is planted: tomatoes, corn, green peppers, eggplant, squash, beans, and basil. The only thing that is missing is you. Come volunteer at the Black Mountain Home for Children Garden Project with us this Saturday or any Saturday through September from 9:00 -11:00 am. No experience is necessary. We will show you what to do. Just bring drinking water and gloves if you have them.
Directions to the Garden Project: From Asheville, take I-40 East to Exit 59, Swannanoa. Turn left at the traffic light, and then right at the next light onto Highway 70. At the next traffic light turn left onto Whitson Ave and then right at the stop sign onto Old US 70. Follow this road for almost 2 miles to the next traffic light. Turn left onto Lake Eden Road. Look for the Garden Project sign before you get to the main entrance of the Home and turn right into the lower fields area near the stone silo.
