Premium in-kind items: Many of our fine library books have come to us through donation as well as some of our Visitor Center and gardening equipment. We also accept artwork and botanical prints for occasional raffle and auction events. We will issue a thank you letter for your tax-deductible donation and print a notice of the gift in our next New Leaf newsletter. Call Heather in our office at 828-252-5190 Monday-Friday, from 11 am to 3 pm, to arrange a drop-off.
Native plant donations: If you would like to make a donation of native plants, please contact our Garden Manger at 828-252-5190 Monday-Friday.
Rummage Sale Donations: Each September, we host our Fall Plant & Rummage Sale in our Sunshine Meadow. If you would like to donate garden tools, books or other interesting items to be sold in the rummage sale, we invite you to bring them by the Visitor Center during our operating hours. Since we get so many loads of rummage sale stuff, we only issue a receipt upon request.
