ASHEVILLE CITY SOURCE – Learn About Swannanoa Greenway at Winter Warmer Celebration of Asheville Greenway programs

Come learn about preliminary studies for the Swannanoa Greenway during a Winter Warmer Celebration of Asheville Greenway Programs. This will be the first greenway in east Asheville. Members of the Asheville Greenway Committee will be there there to share information with residents about other greenway projects also planned for the near future. This program is from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan. 16 at Highland Brewing, 12 Old Charlotte Highway. 

The Swannanoa River Greenway is a greenway corridor of the City’s Greenway Master Plan. It starts at Amboy Road and follows the Swannanoa River to Azalea Park and ends at the intersection of Azalea Road and Tunnel Road in East Asheville. The corridor is 7.5 miles long in its entirety. This corridor is a significant part of the Wilma Dykeman Plan, the oldest greenway plan in Asheville and Buncombe County.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
