Latest Inititiaves Supported by Banner Greenhouses

School thanks Banner Greenhouses for support

To show their thanks, West Marion Elementary students in the Muddy Potters club had a barn quilt made for Banner Greenhouses in Nebo. The business donates seeds and starter plants to the school each year.

On Wednesday, May 10 during the school’s annual Mother’s Day sale, Jeff Mast, president of Banner, was surprised by the Muddy Potters club with the quilt, and a reception of cake and lemonade in his honor.

Giving Back to Our Community

Banner Greenhouses is proud of our involvement with our community on multiple levels including the public elementary schools, high schools, community colleges, and gardening organizations. 

Grow Food Where People Live
Each spring, extra unsold food crops from our organic transplant department are donated to Grow Food Where People Live, a non profit in Polk County, NC that installs edible landscaping and community gardens in rural and low income neighborhoods. This organization increases access to fresh healthy food, while also teaching gardening skills, and food preparation classes. 

Local Schools
Each year Banner Greenhouses donates plants to Nebo Elementary, McDowell High School, and Western Piedmont Community College.  We support these schools' with both advice and plants for use in beautification, fundraisers, exceptional students programs, and agricultural programs. 

4-H Explorers plant annuals in the Nebo Bear Garden for their community service project in May, just in time for end of year celebrations like 5th grade graduation. 

ASAP Growing Minds
In 2016, Banner Greenhouses donated hundreds of organic lettuce transplants to ASAP Growing Minds, a regional non-profit aimed at teaching gardening and healthy eating through elementary school programs.

Greenhouse Tours
Banner Greenhouses provides educational tours for regional college agriculture programs and agriculture organizations. Contact us to request a group educational tour, as these are by appointment only. 

Master Gardeners

Banner Greenhouses is dedicated to supporting the McDowell County and Burke County Extension Master Gardeners programs.

Plants we have donated are used in school greenhouses, at the Master Gardeners booth at the October Mountain Glory festival in Marion and in the Community Garden which supplies almost 900 pounds of produce to the local food banks and shelters.
