Adawehi shares plants with FENCE after damaging rains

Published 10:59 am Wednesday, September 18, 2013

When Jackie Woods, founder and director of Adawehi, saw FENCE’s appeal in their July newsletter, she contacted executive director Carrie Knox to ask if FENCE could take some plants to their popular home of education and equestrian events.

Both FENCE and Adawehi have years of dedication to environmental stewardship. Adawehi was designated as a Stewardship Forest by the NC Forest Service several years ago and did extensive stream restoration work last year along the creek that borders Adawehi and Evangelena Barber’s Tribranch Farm.

FENCE is soliciting donations to cover extensive repairs now needed as a result of recent rains.

Their education programs touch more than 8,000 students every year.

Knox expressed gratitude for the plant donation.

“I am glad to give these plants a home. We have planted the bulbs around our historic log cabin. They will be a lovely addition to the gardens there,” she said.
