We are an all-volunteer group of individuals dedicated to beautifying the Town of Black Mountain.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? We are always looking for volunteers. Come join us as we have fun together by making the town a more beautiful place to live and visit.
We sponsor events ~ Seed Money Award & Black Mountain Garden Sale ~ to give something special back to the community. Plus we fund raise to keep our projects growing.
A jump start on our Fall Workday took place on 11/6. We worked at the side gardens around the Cherry Street Restroom. We filled 19 orange bags. That's right! Thanks to Pat, Carl, Mo, Tracy, and Lyndall for getting this done. Click the link to see the after picture of this site.
It's recycled! Thanks to Tracy & volunteers for taking down everything. Pumpkins go to the farmer to feed his pigs. Hay bales and cornstalks go to Dr. John Wilson Community Garden. Ribbons are recycled for next year. The funcrows are taken apart, clothes washed, and ready for next year. Spider will be dismantled.
On Friday our crafty members were busy making some amazing decorations for the annual Deck the Trees. This event generates $$$ to help offset heating costs for our neighbors in the Valley. So come to The Monte Vista Hotel on Dec. 4 to view all the trees.
Earlier this year, a Seed Money Award was given to Kate Shawgo. Kate, Kenny and crew envisioned reestablishing a meadow back into the Community Meadow Garden. This vision came to be and pictured is just a few veggies from their continual harvest. Congratulations goes out to Kate, Kenny, and the garden team!
Would you like to take a bit of Town Square home with you! Well you can stop by Town Hardware and purchase a notecard set of the 4 seasons of Town Square created by local artist & beautification member, Joyce Black-Woerz. All the funds support our beautification projects.
While you are walking around the Historic District, check out our containers. They are filled with plants that should take the cold weather coming up. Each street has a different design which makes them interesting. The plant material was amazing this fall, just look at this beautiful ornamental cabbage!
