On June 9th community volunteers gathered at Rise and Shine to help create a community garden. Almost everyone who showed up was a Conserver! What an impact we are making on our local community and local food production!

We created garden beds, installed a reused donated composter (thanks to the kindness of community members we have been able to reuse 2 donated composters) and created a trail around the bank perimeter so that the land would be easier to plant and maintain.

We had a great time and what we accomplished in a few short hours was truly amazing.

Brooke organized a tremendous event and our community is richer for her work. Belle from Eagles Nest guided us all on planting and soil construction and Eric from Pisgah Gourmet joined us and brought some compost to share as well.

This is just the start and help is always needed. Thanks to all who made this happen!
