This slice of heaven is off of Cherry Street down Howachyn Walk. Thanks to Jim and Janet for designing and maintaining this garden site.
We are an all-volunteer group dedicated to beautifying the North Carolina Town of Black Mountain.
Come join us as we have fun together by making the town a more beautiful place for all.
We host litter sweeps, the garden sale, seed money award for the community.
Please join us on May 18 at 5:30 pm at the Lake Tomahawk Picnic Pavilion, 401 Laurel Circle Drive in Black Mountain.
While the new CDC guidance doesn't require masks and social distancing, we understand that many of you will be more comfortable still doing it. The meeting place is large enough that we can bring our own chairs and do what is comfortable for you.
We will be discussing the dedication of The Hill garden site, new container project on Black Mountain Ave., fall garden sale and more.

A memorial honoring those who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic was completed in early April. The project, located on a town-owned site known locally as “The Hill” above the Sutton Ave. parking lot.
Longtime committee member Debbie Green proposed a “facelift” to the site comprised of all-native plants while offering a large donation to the project. A memorial will be planned in June to honor Debbie's former husband, W. Larry Ventis, who died because of complications with COVID-19 and other victims.
Due to COVID-19, our May Garden Sale was cancelled. BUT, we will be having a Black Mountain Fall Garden Sale on Sept. 10 & 11 at the Monte Vista Hotel. In 2022, we will be celebrating our 15th Black Mountain Garden Sale to be held in May 20 & 21.
This month we are recognizing Ellen Post and Betsy Kitslaar . Both Ellen and Betsy are very active with the committee whether it’s on The Hill, the Chamber garden site, containers or other projects. We thanked them for separately making landscape designs for The Hill and all of their contributions in making our town beautiful.
Thanks to Anne Dale for chairing the litter sweeps these many years. Thanks to all for attending our April Sweep and making our little town so much cleaner. We filled 34 orange bags of trash which will no longer be on our streets of our fair town.
