Our Work

Like the branches of the mighty oak, the work of the Beautification Committee has spread throughout this town. From the Welcome Signs that greet visitors to Black Mountain, to the 20 public garden spots, the Committee works with town groups to realize this shared vision of Black  Mountain as a hospitable, welcoming community. 

About Our Sites

There are 20 public garden sites in Town and are cared for by a committee member. They range in all sizes and in either full sun to part shade and some have their own unique requirements.  But they all have one thing in common, they are tended and sustained by the member's love and care.

Mapping the Sites

Jack Williams created a map of our public garden site locations throughout the historic district of the Town of Black Mountain.  To download the map, please click below.
