Banner Greenhouses is proud of our involvement with our community on multiple levels including the public elementary schools, high schools, community colleges, and gardening organizations.
We are committed to supporting our community schools with both advice and plants for use in beautification, fundraisers, exceptional students programs, and agricultural programs. Each year we donate plants to West Marion Elementary, McDowell High School’s Agriculture Program and Exceptional Students programs. We support Western Piedmont Community College with plants and participate on their horticultural advisory board.
Plants we have donated are used in school greenhouses and in the community gardens.

West Marion Elementary School thanks Banner Greenhouses for support
To show their thanks, West Marion Elementary students in the Muddy Potters club had a barn quilt made for Banner Greenhouses in Nebo. The business donates seeds and starter plants to the school each year.
On Wednesday, May 10 during the school’s annual Mother’s Day sale, Jeff Mast, president of Banner, was surprised by the Muddy Potters club with the quilt, and a reception of cake and lemonade in his honor.

Thanks from the John Wilson Community Garden
We’ve been harvesting over 100 pounds of greens every week since the end of September thanks to your generous donation of starts this fall. One week we harvested 150 pounds of just lettuce. Bounty and Soul and their clients, to whom all this beautiful produce goes, are deeply grateful. It brings me and all of our garden volunteers joy to be caretaking such abundance.
Wishing you all a bountiful holiday.
Diana McCall and The Dr. John Wilson Community Garden
