Black Mountain Beautification Committee

Gardening in the Valley

We are extremely proud to have a monthly column in The Black Mountain News.  The column is titled Gardening in the Valley and the author is a member of the committee.


Thank you Debbie Green for being the first writer in our column.  Your informative article made me run outside and continue pulling those "wily weeds" in my garden.


Thank you Libba Fairleigh for taking the lead and writing our August column on Plotting for Planning.  After reading your article, I have a watchful eye to see which plants will be up for division this fall. 


Also want to thank Rhonda Reedy for her behind the scenes management of the column and working with the paper.  For being a relatively new member, you have already done so much for our committee.


Committee members interested in writing an article, please contact Rhonda.  If you are wondering what to write about, select  a month and we can offer you some suggestions. 

As always, thank you everyone for all that you do to make our Town beautiful.
