What is Asheville GreenWorks?
Established in 1973, Asheville GreenWorks is an urban environmental conservation organization working to enhance the community through educational and volunteer based environmental programs.
With thousands of volunteers, we engage the community in grassroots projects such as tree plantings, urban agriculture, environmental cleanups, anti-litter and waste reduction education, creation and maintenance of green spaces, playground enhancement, neighborhood beautification and care and preservation of Asheville’s rivers and trees.
Through our work, Asheville has been designated as a Tree City USA for 36 years.
