Our Mission is to build and maintain a volunteer-operated community garden and, through established partnerships with local hunger relief agencies, provide fresh fruits and vegetables to people within our community who are in need of food assistance. The garden also serves an educational function – to teach, inspire, and empower people in Yancey County to grow their own healthy foods using both traditional and modern sustainable methods. To learn more about how we got started, visit our history page.
All produce from the Garden is for local hunger relief agencies or education. The Dig In! Yancey Community Garden is currently located on Bolens Creek Road, in Yancey County, North Carolina, about a mile from the town of Burnsville. For map and directions, go to our Connect page.
