In addition to Perennial and Annual Firefly, we are also focusing on Community Connection. This program is designed to unite various communities and organizations in Western North Carolina to share resources, support each other, and create a web of commonality. The past few years have shown us that strength comes from the ground up, from the support networks we as individuals build, and from each other. We seek to identify the emerging needs of this rapidly changing time through the lens of nature and our elders and meet those needs by weaving a strong web of change that ALL can be a part of.
