The Garden

Please click here to view The Garden Green Walkabout Sign.

The farmlands of what was once the Asheville Farm School originally included the five acres of land now known as the Garden. Its workers, then as now, are students who helped feed the community and who literally reap the benefits of locally grown, freshly harvested food. Some of their sustainable management practices are listed below:

Crop Rotation

Composting

Irrigation

Biological Controls

Education

Meeting Local Food Needs

Double Dug Beds
