The Black Mountain Home for Children Garden Project has a new name, a new Facebook page, two new leaders, and an exciting new funding source to start a new season. The “Home Grown Garden” was honored with a grant from Buncombe County for an irrigation system, wheelbarrows, tools, a picnic table and a shade canopy to make gardening more pleasant for our volunteers.
We will kick off the 2013 planting season (our third year) with a workday on Saturday, April 6 from 10:00 am to noon and repeat every Saturday in April at that time. No experience is necessary, but do bring drinking water. We will continue our lasagna garden layering technique, build a trellis, plant peas and other early crops. Look for the garden sign on Lake Eden Road by the stone silo before you get to the entrance of the Home. And be sure to check out Home Grown Garden on Facebook.
