About West Asheville

West Asheville, voted best neighborhood multiple times in the Mountain Xpress Best Of annual pollsl, is a diverse neighborhood ever expanding its gifts to those who live there and those who visit. In 2006, after offering our Urban Permaculture workshops designed to revitalize our community, the corner of Westwood Place and Haywood Road was responsible for West Asheville’s ranking as America’s #1 eco-neighborhood in Natural Home Magazine. On one corner horticulturist Christopher Mello has reclaimed a vacant lot and transformed it into a beautiful garden open to passers-by. Another corner is home to the Gas-Up which is proud to offer the first BioDiesel pump in NC!  Next door to ASHH are Second Gear which offers recycled sport equipment, and Harvest Records, voted best record store in Mountain Express readers’ polls. Down the street,a village market and West End Bakery offer delicious organic food and a weekly farmer’s market featuring locally grown organic foods.
