Community Garden Clean Up at Pisgah View
WHEN: July 1st from 11am-3pm
WHERE: 1 Granada St, Asheville, NC
There will be a garden clean up at the Pisgah View Community Garden to get it ready for cover cropping to grow during the fall. There are lots of needles in the garden area, so it will be a super cautionary clean up with tasks such as weed eating, lawn mowing and removing trash. Please wear heavy duty gloves and protective gear. Facebook event page
