Earth Stewardship Day in Hendersonville

April 19, 2012

Earth Stewardship Day in HendersonvilleThe Environmental and Conservation Organization (ECO) will be holding its annual Earth Stewardship Day in Hendersonville on Saturday, April 28, 2012.  ECO held past Earth Stewardship Days at the Blue Ridge Community College.  However, this year, they are doing something a little different.  Instead of hosting one family and eco-friendly event, they have decided to be a bit more ambitious by holding several different ecologically minded projects around the City of Hendersonville throughout the day.

The ECO believes that the community that works together, thrives together.  Some of the projects for Earth Stewardship Day in Hendersonville include:

  • 7th Ave Community Organic Garden – building orchards and community gardens
  • Boylston Creek – planting grass and pollinator patches along the buffer
  • Fletcher Park – removing weeds and invasive plant species
  • Girl Scout Hut – building orchards and community gardens
  • Holmes Education Forest – trail maintenance
  • Jackson Park – building orchards and community gardens
  • Lewis Creek (Edneyville) – removing a beaver dam
  • Sullivan Park – stream bank restoration

ECO has partnered with several local organizations to make these projects happen.  The public is welcome to join in.  Work on all projects will take place from 9am to 1:30pm.  Afterwards, all Hendersonville area participants are welcome to attend the celebratory picnic being held at the Blue Ridge Community College.  Enjoy musical accompaniment while chowing down on a picnic feast.  If the day gets rained out, Earth Stewardship Day in Hendersonville will be postponed until the following Saturday (May 5, 2012). If you are interested in participating, please call ECO at 828-692-0385 or visit their website.
