Public workdays at the Sandhill Native Tree Nursery and Edible Orchard take place on the 4th Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. until noon at Buncombe County Sports Park. Fall dates are September 28, October 19, and November 23.
Join other volunteers in mulching, pruning, and weeding along with special projects. Please wear work clothes to get dirty and close-toed shoes. Sunscreen, water, and hat are also handy items to have on hand. All other tools and gear will be provided. Contact Gabby Fitts with any questions at (828) 232-7144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sandhill tree nursey is supported with a Buncombe County Community Recreation Grant. Specific native trees are grown at the site and planted in public places throughout the county as a larger plan to plant no less than 500 trees annually. The project allows for a greater variety of fruit and shade trees to support a more diverse ecology.
