Many of you have been out to tour our beautiful woodland medicinal plant demonstration area at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research Station. The heavy summer storms have made a mess and we need a lot of extra hands to help clean up debris so we can keep offering walking tours and mini-workshops. This is an opportunity to see these woodland botanicals up close and personal, exchange knowledge with other interested individuals, and learn more about our current research and education efforts.
The volunteer work day will be July 16th starting at 9 am. Please bring work gloves, water, and wear appropriate clothing. You can pack a lunch and we can eat in one of the conference rooms in the Center. Come for an hour or two or spend the day with us.
Please meet in the gravel parking lot to your left as you enter the Research Station (this is the facility down near the river where the greenhouses are). Note, the construction of the Sierra Nevada Brewery near the research station has resulted in a temporary road closure. If you come in via I-26 please follow these directions to get to our facility:
Old Fanning Bridge Road is closed on the Hwy NC-280 side. So, to get to our facilities from I-26, continue south on Hwy NC-280 for several miles. Turn right on Hwy NC-191 (Old Haywood Road). Go several miles and turn right on Old Fanning Bridge Road. The research station will be on your left (74 Research Drive, Mills River, NC 28759).
