“Grow” year-long gardening program

October 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

M R Gardens in the Oakley community of Asheville is offering a year-long opportunity for people to be involved with the growing of their own food while learning a unique style of sustainable gardening. Participants meet approximately three times a month, currently at 4:00 on Tuesdays, for 2.5 hours. Each session includes a new lesson in an aspect of edible and native landscaping; an in-depth talk about a medicinal herb and native; a hands-on activity; and harvest of vegetables, fruit, herbs and/or flowers. “Grow” is for the home gardener; “Emergence” is for those who hope to make a living from gardening. Please inquire by Oct. 20 about the easy application process. If this date passes and you are still interested, please still get in touch.
