Building Community Through Gardening

The Trees NC Senior / Youth Garden is helping build community in Asheboro, NC. Located on the grounds of a historic Rosenwald school, now converted into a unique housing complex for senior citizens, the garden is a project that has grown from the simple idea of "returning to the roots of community."

"This is something that the residents are thoroughly enjoying," said Addie Luther, a Trees NC board member who is a long time leader in Asheboro's East Side Neighborhood. "They are thrilled to have this garden, they are sharing the foods - it is fantastic."

Thanks go to the many organizations and individuals who have helped make the garden a success!
