The GreenWorks' Food Tree Project works in partnership with communities located within Buncombe County that lack access to fresh, healthy food options. In addition to planting single food producing trees, we are installing community orchards that will have any even wider reach within our community. These orchards will be available for the immediate communities consumption first. To get involved in this meaningful and fun project, please contact us.
