We are so stoked to share that we recently updated our logo to better represent what we do!
We are proud that this design came 100% in-house from the artistry of our team in collaboration with one another!
For those of you who don’t know, we work cooperatively and co-run this agriculture business and absolutely LOVE NOT HAVING A BOSS.
We do, of course, have a Program and Executive Director, as we are part of a wonderful non-profit. These amazing individuals truly support our growth and creativity in undergoing this year-long shift (and longer) of the Grass to Greens business model to cooperatively better serve our organization and this vibrant city we call home!
Keep your eyes out for our work in neighborhoods, apartment complex’s, community gardens, and @avlcityschools ;)

Today is supposed to get up to 80f (25c) and while I want to enjoy this warmth, I’m worried for the tender buds on the fruit trees. Tomorrow and thereafter we drop back down to normal February temperatures for a while.
These are the early buds on my elderberry (Younger Brother, not Pliny). They’ve both grown up strong in the last year and I’m excited to see what elderberry mischief I can get into this fall!

Our favorite kind of visitor! This Monarch is flirting among our dahlia collection at the store!
Did you know that you can easily store dahlia tubers in your basement or garage over the winter and plant them again in mid May? They are pretty heavy feeders (meaning, they like lots of fertilizer!), but the blooms you get August until frost is so worth the trouble! Dahlias make excellent cut flowers and the more you cut, the more they bloom!

As do all things Summer, my parent’s tomato beds got away from them at some point (not to mention those marigolds, yowza). I spent some time getting them up off the ground this afternoon. In the process I revealed some little late season tomato volunteers, as well as basil, parsley, and peppers that have all managed the challenge to survive the madness.
I think, since the seeds have already proven themselves viable, I’m going to try my hand at seed saving some of these tomatoes. Is it worth it since they’re so close to the peppers? I really have no idea.

Our very first wedding was incredible! Josie and Derek will forever hold our hearts and a very special piece of Weaver House history. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make magic this weekend. Thank you to the friends, family and wedding dates. Your smiles and rockstar dance moves truly tie the room together! Most of all thank you to this beautiful couple. Thank you for your trust, understanding and love. From the bottom of our hearts, we love you! Thank you! - signed, Weaver House Team
I’m sure there’s a metaphor to be found in the fact that a few hours of planning, weeding, and putting seeds in 128 square feet of dirt results in what essentially looks like nothing, but I’m not sure what it is.
I know I’m getting a late start, but hopefully everything will germinate and my row cover will provide enough protection come frost time. Here goes nothing, right?
