New Belgium Asheville holds its first official neighborhood open house, with NBB leadership in attendance: CEO Kim Jordan, GM Jay Richardson, and Director of Strategy & Sustainability Jenn Vervier.

Meant to highlight community partners, the event has a few stories to share of NBB’s ongoing relationship to local organizations.

For instance:

  • Bent Creek Institute and WNC Communities both work with New Belgium to process spent grain in innovative ways.
  • Around the site and in collaboration with the NBB site, RiverLink works with the City of Asheville to support stormwater mitigation along the stream that comes down Waynesville Ave. and runs through the New Belgium site. The effort will use a $400,000 Clean Water Trust Fund grant.
  • Asheville on Bikes has worked with New Belgium since 2009 as a Clips of Faith partner.  Money AOB raised  supported the part of the purchase of the Waller Tract, now Hominy Creek Greenway. AOB  continues to partner with NBB to advocate for and support multimodal progress in Asheville.

An interesting mix of Asheville organizations is slated to participate, including Asheville Design Center, A-B Tech, and and Green Opportunities.

From the NBB release:

Please join us!   Please share with friends and neighbors!
