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 of green spaces, care and preservation of Asheville’s rivers and trees.
Through our work, Asheville has been designated as a Tree City USA for 36 years.

Nov 12th & 13th - Tire Amnesty Days
(Free Tire Collection)
Volunteers sought to help us heave SUPER dirty tires into semi-trailers. This is hard work, but so helpful for our environment. We collected 2,455 tires at the last event, we're expecting to receive even MORE this time around. Think crossfit+spartan run but without the trophies.
