The Lord's Acre
This beautiful place is a diverse and open community of people who volunteer to help grow and give away thousands of pounds of organic food every year to families in need.
Last week there was a square dance, silent auction, and pot-luck dinner to raise money for the garden and a wonderful time was had by all :) I'm a little biased but these people are some of the best I've ever met.
Volunteer night is every Wednesday from 6-8pm, so if you're in the Asheville area and willing to get your hands dirty come on by!
"Now in our seventh growing season, this garden has brought thousands of people into the opportunity to be inspired by new ways of doing community and doing food. We don’t buy the “giver” and “receiver” labels, since we all have something to offer and all have something we need.
What we do believe in is taking peoples’ strengths, passions, talents, and creativity and weaving those into solutions on issues like food security, loneliness, prejudice and the isolation of modern society.
Yes, we believe a garden and the acts of learning, growing and eating food together, can accomplish all that. We believe it because we see it every day."
