For the last year or so the Organic Growers School has been based out of AB Tech’s Small Business Center in Candler, NC. This has proved to be a great space for our growing organization, so much so that we’ve expanded our office into 2 adjoining rooms!
In the new space we are tackling seating and workspace layout, storage concerns, and overall functionality for 8 staff members working out of the office. It has been a process but nonetheless an exciting time and a great marker of OGS’s continued growth.
To aid in turning this space into our own we are asking for donations of certain items. All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated!
- 5 Desk Chairs: more compact, on wheels, ideally ergonomic, yoga balls
- Tables: Either 3×2 ft OR 6×2 ft
- Standing desk adaptors
- A coat rack for back of a door
- Wireless printer/scanner
- Electric Tea Kettle
- House Plants
- Mic/pa system
Ella McCoy is a graduate of Appalachian State University’s MBA program and a native of Western North Carolina. She grew up reluctantly helping in her family’s garden and was as surprised as everyone else when she developed a passion for food advocacy and farming, while interning with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture. Since moving to Asheville, Ella has been involved with the Grace Presbyterian Community Garden, OGS, F.E.A.S.T, and as an “unpaid intern” at her partner’s farm. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, beekeeping, photography, and as much reading as possible.
