May 1 EEVS Community Garden Day!
Updated: Apr 27, 2021
We have had to postpone our Community Garden Day Event scheduled for Saturday, April 17, and we are moving forward with a new date of Saturday, May 1. We apologize for the inconvenience and, we hope that you will join us on May 1.
Join us for an East End/Valley Street Community Garden Day! This event provides opportunities to volunteer in the garden, receive free ice cream from The Hop (while supplies last), visit local organizations, participate in a container gardening workshop, and receive free swag! It’s happening on Saturday, May 1 from 10am to 1pm! The garden is located across the parking lot from the Stephens Lee Recreation Center at 30 George Washington Carver Avenue. It would be great if you could stop by, even if it’s only for a few minutes. Please contact Rose at (828) 350-2058 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
Light refreshments will be provided for volunteers. Volunteers are expected to wear closed toes shoes. Water, tools, and gloves will be available. Masks are required for this event and expect to practice social distancing. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided for attendees. Although Stephens-Lee Recreation Center is closed to the public at this time, there will be exceptions to using the restrooms since no one is in the center on the weekends. Greenworks and the City of Asheville will be tabling at the event. There will be giveaways including shirts and reusable water bottles. There will also be a garden workshop led by Tamarya Sims who works for the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. Workshop participants will have a chance to enter a raffle to win grow bags
This community event is in partnership with the City of Asheville, The East End/Valley Street Neighborhood Association, Bountiful Cities, Greenworks, and The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy.
