Eat Farm to Table in Asheville to Celebrate Earth Day 2014

Earth Day has quickly come upon us, springing  up silently behind Easter. Depending on how you generally celebrate Earth Day - perhaps you plant a tree, start your family garden, or take an extra trip to the recycling center - there are a number of ways you can 'go green' at least one day a year to recognize the Earth Day Movement. One really easy thing to do is eat out. Yup, you heard me right - eat out. Support a local business and celebrate Earth Day all at the same time!

Though I am not sure where I am getting that information from. In any case, it was another beautiful day and I was just dying to be outside. For some reason, this cafe popped into my mind and I headed to Charlotte Street, hoping they had outdoor seating.
