Join us for a zero-waste potluck and learn from Mountaintrue about being a good neighbor to the Little River.

We will host our first potluck of 2021 on Thursday June 3rd at 6 pm.  Please bring a covered dish to share and your own non-disposable place setting.  Plant-based meals are encouraged and all dishes are welcome.  Everyone is welcome to join us.  We look forward to getting together.

At 6:30 pm we will enjoy a presentation from Anna of Mountaintrue on how to be a good neighbor to the river.  The Little River runs beside the Canteen and we are excited to learn ways we can be good stewards.  Here is some information about Anna:

Anna Alsobrook
Watershed Outreach Coordinator

As MountainTrue’s Watershed Outreach Coordinator, Anna facilitates volunteer water quality monitoring and restoration programs in the French Broad River watershed. She can be found all over the watershed taking samples, removing invasive species, planting live stakes, maintaining our riverside campsites and picking up river trash.

Anna’s passion for water really started during her semester abroad in South Africa when she became sick after a big rainstorm. She did not realize then the connections between water quality and health. After earning a B.A. in Global Studies, she spent 2010-2012 as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Senegal. As a preventative health and environmental education volunteer, she spent much time promoting water conservation and sanitation practices within her village. After her time abroad she continued her studies, again at the University of Tennessee, where she earned an M.S. in Geography with a minor in Watersheds. Her thesis research pertained to the environmental and social effects of a large reforestation project happening in Senegal. Anna loves spending time outdoors, whether by the river or on the trail.

We are an official partner with Mountaintrue as a water testing site for the Little River!

You know one of the reasons we have so many amazing breweries in the area is because of our amazing water.  We are passionate about being great partners to the Little River that runs by our beer garden.  One of the first things we decided when we bought the Canteen was that we wanted to help educate folks on our beautiful river and things we can do to improve it and enjoy it.

We reached out to Mountaintrue and asked if we could be added to their Clean Waters program and have our site added as an official water testing site.  We are SO HAPPY to announce that is now an active partnership!  We will be testing the water on a regular basis as part of Mountaintrue’s program and folks will know the quality of the water we are so excited to open up again.

There are a few things we need to do to get the program off the ground and look forward to opening access to the river once those are complete.  We are super excited and look forward to celebrating the river together with our community.

Please bring your own glass and help us become zero-waste

We have a goal to be a zero-waste business.  You can help!  Bring your own beverage glass when you visit.  It is that simple. 

Tin Roof Pizza will be with us most Friday and Saturdays!

Tin Roof Pizza has amazing pizza and she shares it with us most Friday and Saturdays, Fridays from 4 - 8 pm and Saturdays from 2 - 6 pm.  She will be with us over Memorial Day weekend so please join us!  Please check on a weekly basis for her schedule.  Want to help us with our goal to be zero-waste?  Please bring your own cloth napkin when you come for pizza.  It is that simple. 

We're planting a food forest and native plants and trees

Growing food organically and planting native plants and trees is one of our passions.  We are a public house and we want the community to enjoy locally grown food so we are busy planting.  We have planted 2 peach trees, rhubarb, blueberry bushes, strawberries, and are planning on much more as the weather warms up.  We have also planted 2 Red Bud trees and 1 Dogwood in the garden for shade.

We planted bee balm, a native flower.  Our dear friend Susan Sunflower brought us native Green and Golds and planted them at the base of our shade trees and also blessed us with a couple of Oconee Bells, a rare native flower.

Michael Plauche of the Transylvania County Bird Club brought us 4 bird boxes for our food forest as well.  We have found nesting birds are one of the greatest forms of natural pest control.

We received some gorgeous hanging baskets from our neighbors Lisa and Cindy, for the garden and soon you will see beans, tomatoes and cucumbers growing from those.

Linda brought us a spider plant and we have that enjoying the sunshine in one of our windows.  These are some of the best plants for indoor air quality and we love it!

Rob and Su brought us a beautiful flowering hanging basket!  What beautiful abundance!

We are so grateful to all who are helping us expand our beautiful garden.  It is truly a community garden.  Thank you so much!

We look forward to more community members contributing to our food forest.  Do you have something you would like to contribute?  We would love to hear from you!
