Marsha Crites, Harvest Moon Gardens

Herbs and Perennials – Grant Award: $6,000

Marsha has been in the nursery business for nearly 20 years, and now operates a day retreat for local businesses and non-profits. For the WNC AgOptions project, she will propagate and cultivate most of the perennial flowers and herbs used in her landscape design business and retreat center.

She will be able to considerably improve her business’ bottom line by not buying materials off-site, and the Center will be a more pleasing retreat business and agri-tourism destination.
