Did you know that WNC has its very own community food garden? Everyone is welcome to participate and there is no cost. Produce is used for healthy snacks/meals in our community programs and shared with community members. Don’t know how to garden? No worries – we offer weekly organic gardening workshops during the growing season (Spring/Summer/Fall) to show how easy it is to be an urban gardener!
