Buncombe Fruit and Nut Club is not a non-profit, it is not a government agency, we don’t solicit grant money, it is not a for profit. It really isn’t anything. Just a group of folks like you, who trust that when we connect with one another, good things happen in our community. Our parks are where we like to connect. We believe that these "commons" belong to the people, and we the people, belong to the commons. BFNC does all the things we do without costing anybody anything. Quite simply we are a leaderful disorganization focused on irreverent relevance.
This year's organizing meeting is Sunday, January 12th at the Appalachian School of herbal medicine in West Asheville we would love it if you participated.
The great thing about "not being anything" is the BFNC is flexible and we are continually redesigning this disorganization to be inclusive of all people who believe that our common spaces should reflect the interests of the public to which they belong. One aspect of that is the belief that multipurpose landscape trees, such as fruit and nut trees, are a positive asset to our commons. These trees do need a little care and that is why we get together in the late winter and early spring to tend them. But mostly, these events are an excuse to get together with friends, new and old, to share good times, food, knowledge and play together. This year we are having a series of community picnics in each of the commons that have fruit and nut tree plantings. Please come and join in the creative process of organizing these picnics. We would also like to make them irresistible to children.
This event is free to the public. Annual membership registration and renewal is optional and will be available at the door. Your $10 membership contribution goes directly to the projects and permits you to join in field trips and other fun events through the year. None of the proceeds go to pay staff, taxes, or anything like that.
