Organic Growers School is Moving to Smith Mill Works October 1, 2018
Hello OGS supporters,
We have good news—we’re officially ‘graduating’ from A-B Tech’s Small Business Incubator program! We have been searching for new offices for a few weeks and are delighted to be moving to the Smith Mill Works complex in West Asheville effective October 1, 2018.
We are very excited to make this move. There are several other agricultural businesses already in the complex with more on the way. We think this will be a perfect fit for OGS and our mission.
One advantage of our tenure at A-B Tech Enka is that we were provided with some basic office furniture that we will now need to procure for our new space—that’s where you could come in.
We are looking for donations or opportunities to purchase (inexpensively) the following items…
Office Work Tables
Ideal size will be 3’x4′, 3’x5′, 3’x6′ or 4’x6′. The how manyquestion will be answered by the combination of offers and sizes.
At least 6 office-style chairs, wheeled would be great. Some stackable chairs (3 or 4?) for occasional use.
A small credenza or other suitable platform for our printer and copy paper storage.
We’re also looking for support from…
We need 5 or so folks who can help lift heavy things for part or all of the day on Sunday September 30th. If you have a truck, that’s even better. Please contact Sera at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are moving on September 30, 2018, so we’d like to have everything lined up a few days prior. Our Administrative Director, Rod Bowling, is coordinating this effort. Please route all questions or offers through him. He will coordinate the offers, pickups, etc.
Please email Rod at email@example.com if you have anything to donate or sell. For further questions, you may reach him on his cell at 828-689-4353.

“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
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.
