4 x 4 Wild Patch Asheville non-profits

 

Asheville has a long history of attracting passionate, innovative individuals who seek to change the world for the better.  It is one of the myriad reasons that we, at Mosaic Realty, love Asheville.

 

4 x 4 for Wild!

 

One of Asheville's newest non-profits, 4 x 4 for Wild, embraces the concepts of community and connectivity with nature that so many Ashevillians share.  Concerned about the rapid loss of habitat and decline of monarch butterflies and other pollinators, founders Mike and Moni Hill are working to combat the problem on a local level, with plans to expand their reach.  4X4 for Wild is an Asheville-based non-profit with a goal of creating pollinator habitat in lawns across the region.

 

The Mission:

 

  • To create habitat for native pollinators by providing affordable and accessible "wild patch" solutions

 

  • To raise ecological awareness through education and public outreach

 

  • To change the preferred aesthetic from lawn to wildness

The Process:

 

The 4x 4 for Wild team is happy to loop you into this project. It takes them 10 minutes to install, and they request only a $10 donation to cover expenses.

 

The product is a complete wild patch kit, consisting of a biodegradable paper bag (for weed and grass barrier), wood chips/mulch, planting mix, wildflower seeds (including common milkweed for monarch butterflies), stakes and string, and an attractive sign.

 

The Result:

 

Your 4x4 wild patch will give pollinators a point of connectivity in their migration path.  It will give your neighborhood a sense of community empowerment as more and more people pull together in this effort. Finally, it will give you 16 square feet of beautiful, wild habitat to enjoy throughout the growing season. Projects like this that make living in Asheville so amazing!
