Friday, February 24 from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. Did you know one of the oldest community food forests is located in Asheville? With over 40 varieties of fruit and nut trees, a butterfly habitat, and annual vegetable garden, maintaining this space named for the famous inventor and agricultural scientist is a year-round job for volunteers. Join us for another community workday at the Dr. George Washington Carver Edible Park! The park is located at 30 George Washington Carver Avenue. There is parking in the Stephens Lee Recreation Center parking lot.
Every month we focus on mulching, tree and shrub care, picking up trash, and clearing invasives. We're also doing plantings and working towards expanding the edible park during the growing season. We will include hands-on demonstrations of gardening skills used throughout the season and are happy to give tours of the park. Masks are welcome but not required. We will have some extra tools for everyone to use as well as hand sanitizer, but folks are encouraged to bring gloves, hand tools, water and anything you need to be comfortable in the elements.
The community workdays being presented for the residents of the City of Asheville are in partnership with the City of Asheville.
