Our 9th annual EmpTea Bowls was a great success and we raised more than our goal so that we can continue growing healthy food and supporting our internship and educational programs. We thank all of our volunteers and donors. We look forward to our next years 10th Anniversary to be announced.
Empty Bowls is an international fundraising model. If it is new to you, you are in for a treat! Local potters donate handmade tea bowls for the event. You will get to choose a bowl, enjoy drinking tea from it, and then take it home as a reminder of folks whose bowls are often empty. Taking part becomes your opportunity to keep our community’s bowls filled.
The Dr. John Wilson Community Garden is a program of Black Mountain Recreation and Parks. EmpTea Bowls is organized by Black Mountain Recreation and Parks, and the Friends of the Community Garden under the auspices of the Black Mountain Parks and Greenways Foundation, a 501(c)(3).
