Home Grown Garden Opportunity!

  • Black Mountain Home for CHildren 80 Lake Eden Road Black Mountain, NC, 28711 United States (map)

Home Grown Garden at the Black Mountain Home for Children is now in its seventh year thanks to members of First Pres and Christ Community Church in Montreat. This year we've been offered the opportunity to work alongside men from Good Works, parishioners from our neighbor Trinity Episcopal's Church of the Advocate. Come join us this Wednesday, June 28 from 6 - 8pm when Good Works will be working at the garden. Evenings at Home Grown are especially beautiful!

This past Wednesday Home Grown Garden donated 19 pounds of head lettuce, two varieties of kale, kohlrabi, and wild purslane to Bounty and Soul for distribution to our neighbors in the Swannanoa valley.

A shaded picnic table and cold water (in case you forget your water bottle) are next to the garden. Come see what’s up and growing and the farm animals in the adjacent fields. No experience is needed; I'll show you what needs to be done and/or listen to and your gardening experiences. Call or email Ann Kieffer for more information: or (828)458-2004.
