Community Connect Food Garden
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!
