The Sand Hill Community Garden is looking for volunteer gardeners. The purpose of the community garden is to supply fresh vegetables for MANNA Food Bank. Garden helpers have the satisfaction of helping MANNA Food Bank feed the hungry in Buncombe County and they are rewarded for their time and hard work with seasonal vegetables for their personal use. 10% of each harvest is donated to MANNA Food Bank and the rest is distributed among volunteers.
The Sand Hill Community Garden is located next to the Sand Hill - Venable Elementary School at the Buncombe County Sports Park. Stop by and see what’s growing!
For information about how to get involved, call Buncombe County Parks, Greenways and Recreation Services at 250-4260.
