Each year the Men’s Garden Club of Asheville holds two or more plants sales open to the general public. Spring and Fall plant sales are held at the Botanical Gardens of Asheville at the University of North Carolina-Asheville. A Spring sale is often held in Black Mountain.

Proceeds from the plant sale help to fund the Club’s scholarship program and multiple beautification sites across the Asheville area including the gardens at the Asheville Community Theater, Reuter Center on the UNCA Campus, and Azalea Park.

As part of their 75th anniversary and ongoing commitment to the City of Asheville and Buncombe County the Men’s Garden Club of Asheville is working with A.B.Tech and Western Carolina Historical Association to restore the grounds surrounding Smith-McDowell House Museum on the A.B.Tech campus to the intent of the original concept design created by Frederick Olmstead, the designer for the Vanderbilt estate in Asheville.  The first two phases have now been completed including the removal of dead trees, shrubs and plants not part of the original design.  Plantings as described in the drawings of 1900 were accomplished in 2014.  This year the project will be completed in the summer.
