John opening kiln, August 29, 2014

A big thanks to everyone donating their time, energy and bowls for The Dig In! Yancey Community Garden 4th Annual Empty Bowls event. As John Britt has indicated, it was a huge success. The guests were thrilled with the bowls and everyone had a great time. There were about 15 soups, donated by local restaurants and individuals, great bread and sweets, and a wonderful atmosphere.

Dig In! is in its fifth season and has now donated over 18,000 pounds of produce to five different organizations in Yancey County that provide food and meals to the our neighbors in need of food assistance. Please come and visit the garden. You can see hundreds of photographs and learn more at www.diginyancey.org. It is located next to Linda McFarling's pottery and showroom in Burnsville so you can see both the beautiful garden and some of Linda's great pots at one place. You will be about half an hour from Penland so there is a lot to see nearby. Contact me to set up a tour.

Again, many thanks. Your continuing efforts make a huge difference in our region.

And just in case you have not heard yet, Manna raised $50,000 at their recent Empty Bowls events on September 15th. That will provide 150,000 meals to western North Carolina residents. Those bowls really do great things.
