This past spring, we worked with other community partners to prepare and give away plant starts at the Hunger Coalition’s food distribution.  The project was a great success and patrons at the distribution have continued to ask for plants.  One person shared photos of her plants and they were stunning!  Thanks, Shane for passing these on.  Shane is on the Hunger Coalition’s board and a member of our project, Eating Consciously.

Because a large part of Moving to Conservers’ work focuses on eliminating the thought that anything is disposable, we have updated our tag that goes with the plants asking for the return of pots and unused soil from the previous distribution.  Thanks to John Lawson for creating and updating the tag for us!

Reuse helps in so many ways.

One of our greatest needs for continuing the plant give-away is high-quality soil

Composting creates soil and soil is one of the things we need the most in order to support this program.  We need more compost facilities in the community.  Do you have compost you don’t use or are you willing to set up a compost space so that you can use your food scraps and help them become soil?  Let us know by emailing  We can help connect you with folks who can make that happen!

Our next potting day is Sunday, August 23rd at 10:30 am at Rooster Head.

Interested in helping?  Join the planting crew Sunday, August 23rd at 10:30 am at Roosterhead.  All work is done outside.  Masks are required and social distancing will be practiced.  We will have 100 flower pots available (thanks to Susan Sunflower) and plants thanks to Gaia Herbs!  We are in need of soil if you have some you can bring, it would be most appreciated.  Rooster Head is located at 1200 Old Hendersonville Hwy Brevard, NC 28712

Please note, this was originally scheduled for 1 pm.
