Proceeds Support Master Gardener Programs
Garden tours raise money to support our programs, with emphasis on our School Garden Grants program. Since our first tour in 2007, we have given over $40,000 in grants to more than 50 schools, allowing thousands of Buncombe County children to become involved in healthy, outdoor activity. They are our future gardeners!
