What is the Rhoades Property Garden?
The Rhoades Property Garden serves as a space for UNCA students and faculty and Asheville community members to learn and participate in sustainable agriculture practices.The intergenerational activities that are practiced in the garden are intended to make connections between the diverse communities and neighborhoods of Asheville, educational institutions, and various sectors of the food system. The Rhoades Property garden provides a fun way to learn about sustainability and organic gardening and serves as an opportunity to gain and share knowledge, which in turn will create a community response to local food security.
How do I get Involved?
Throughout the school year and the summer term, garden managers hold open garden workdays that will be posted on our Campus Gardens Facebook page. Our current ROOTS garden manger, Morgane Marshall (firstname.lastname@example.org), would also love to hear from interested students and community members.
