Garden Work Days Every Tuesday 9:00 am - Noon

Haw Creek Garden vegetables are finally beginning to grow and shine with the sun and rising temperatures. Come join the community in the garden Tuesday mornings from 9:00am-12:00pm. No experience necessary, simply willingness to learn and work!

This past month we’ve harvested cool weather crops like onions, garlic, broccoli and various greens. We have also planted warm season vegetables and added to our pollinator and perennial gardens to create nectar for our bee friends. In July we will continue to plant, harvest, manage insects, and cover crop to build soil and provide food for our chickens.

For questions or to get involved, contact Kate Rudd at 203-212-7985 or katey.rudd@hawcreekcommons.com.

Contemplative Practice Gathering
Jul

Contemplative Practice Gathering

Join us on July 27th from 6:45 to 8:15 at the Haw Creek Commons for a time of contemplative practice through shared silence, discussion, mindful movement and singing with live music.  Each week there will be a brief presentation about how the practices you’re learning affect your brain. There will be audio and video materials available to support your practice.

The Contemplative Practices group is part of the larger “Haw Creek Commons” (HCC) project sponsored by the Missional Wisdom foundation, which is based in Dallas and has branches in Portland, OR, Wichita, KS and here in Asheville. 

The aim is to make HCC a vibrant community center for the seven-thousand household Haw Creek Neighborhood of East Asheville. Among the projects HCC has begun or will start soon are sustainable gardening, beekeeping, coworking space, community commercial kitchen, studio art space, community wood working shop, retreat space, yoga/dance/exercise space, performance, gallery and event space and much more. 

The overall goal is to bring a contemplative awareness to all activities. To contribute to that goal, the Contemplative Practices group will be offering an immersion in wide variety of contemplative practices, all grounded in the very new field of contemplative neuroscience. 

Each week, in addition to singing with live music and mindful, meditative music, there will be short periods of silent contemplative practice, brief presentations of different ways the brain can be trained to make contemplative practice easier and more accessible, and contemplative dialogue. As the group progresses, we hope to develop what we’re calling “contemplative activism,” providing a resource for others to bring a more contemplative outlook to their activities, whether at work, school, in healing, and even in politics! 

We are considering offering occasional “mini-retreats” – several hours on a Saturday morning or even a half day – on specific topics like mindful/contemplative eating and exercise, mindful/contemplative approaches to dealing with all kinds of physical pain, and whatever else folks are interested in exploring from a contemplative stance. Facilitators: Don Salmon and Jan Maslow

If you're interested in learning more about the group, you can see more at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/contemplative-practices.  Also, many of the exercises we're doing can be found at www.remember-to-breathe.org/Breathing-Videos.htm

When: Thursday, July 27, 2017 6:45 PM

Where: Haw Creek Commons

Community Garden Work Party

It is nearing time to prepare Haw Creek Commons Garden for Spring planting! Whether you’re a seasoned gardener who wants to teach others or a garden newbie who wants to learn, we invite you to come garden with your neighbors in Haw Creek. We had several faithful gardeners last year and are looking forward to growing the garden community. Gardeners can take home a share of the harvest and the rest is used for our programs and given to Manna Food Bank. Our first workday will be Tuesday, March 14th.  Garden work-days are Tuesday afternoons from 3:00-5:00pm and Saturday afternoons from 1:00-3:00pm during the early spring season. If you would like to be involved but these days and times don’t fit your schedule or for more information, email Katey Rudd at  katey@hawcreekcommons.com.
