Buncombe County is funding community work in a new way through the Isaac Coleman Community Investment Grants, focusing on grassroots groups rather than traditional, institutional nonprofit organizations.
“The purpose of the Southside Arts & Agricultural Center project is to support healing, restoring and reclaiming community culture; support emerging leaders; grow food; and incubate economic development.”
Green leads a free poetry workshop for teens at the Burton Street Community Street Center from 1-3 p.m.
Word in the Street is volunteer-run. A $500 grant from All Souls Cathedral Outreach Committee helped with the purchase of simultaneous interpretation technology — headsets so that everyone can understand what’s being said.
