Get ready for Love Asheville GO LOCAL WEEK Feb.8 – Feb.15
During the week of Valentine’s from Sat., February 8 – Sat., February 15th Asheville celebrates Go Local Week! If you’re a member, let us know what you’ve got going on during that week and we’ll help spread the word.
And mark your calendars for our next… Local Social
Everyone is invited to this free event to explore downtown’s newest hands-on museum and artistic celebration by our beloved LEAF. Roam next door and enjoy dancing and scrumptious local delicacies at The Block off Biltmore.
We’re busy figuring out all the details, but it is shaping up to be quite the event. You’re not going to want to miss this great way to end Go Local Week.
Fighting for this place We love – Start this decade off by taking local to the next level.
Maybe you join a city board or commission or volunteer with a nonprofit or a school. Perhaps you run for office or help someone who is. Hopefully, you vote. There are many ways each of us can strengthen our community every day. Asheville is the type of place where you get involved. We are still small and unique enough that even a little effort can make a big difference.
Looking for some ideas?

“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
