Sometimes a journey goes well beyond reach.

Have you ever held a seed in your hand and saw the world inside? Ever pondered where it might have come from? If you ever find yourself strolling through the Botanical Gardens at Asheville, you may come across a pretty spectacular tree. Although it is “just a common sycamore,” its journey is somewhat unbelievable. It was once hidden away in a secret spot to grow, to keep it safe from thievery. Why all the fuss to protect it?

Gifted to the Botanical Gardens and planted on Arbor Day, March 19, 1976, this tree was born from a seed which traveled on the January 31, 1971 Apollo 14 flight to the Moon!

It just goes to show our true potential is usually more than we realize.

What if the Sky’s NOT the Limit?

At a recent breakfast hosted by LEADERSHIP ASHEVILLE, the discussion was about how to create a connected community. One panelist that was particularly moving was Amy Cantrell, of BeLoved Asheville. She shed light on a harsh reality that many kids living right in the heart of Asheville have never been and can not afford to attend a theatre performance, or a local ball game. This sparked an idea.

Eliada was very receptive to joining us at the Asheville Tourists game, and brought a group of young adults that are overcoming obstacles to transition from foster care to independence, and are putting forth great effort to create a good life for themselves. We were so grateful they could come, and it taught us to broaden our scope of connection beyond the business relationships we have in our community.

Here, and in upcoming issues, we will also be highlighting organizations that are making a big impact on our community.


BELOVED ASHEVILLE A community deeply rooted in Love and Justice. 

Some of the amazing projects BeLoved Asheville has created include the BeLoved Asheville Village that provides deeply affordable, community-oriented, sustainable tiny homes that produce equity for the residents.They also have a Kids/Youth Build initiative where the kids will fully sponsor, fund and build a tiny home in the village.

The Platinum Team enjoyed two great nights at the ball game in one of the Tourists VIP Suites. Yummy food, fun games, and a rare opportunity to be close to the players warming up. One of them even tossed a Platinum kid a ball! Thank you to the Eliada family for joining us for one of the nights. A great time had by all!

It has been wonderful to sit with the team and dream up what's next. We have spent some time talking about how we can become even more connected to our clients and community. Volunteering with non-profits and giving our clients a platform to tell their stories are some of the ways we are stepping into connection.

We are grateful for each and every one of you. Please let us know how we can serve you, and if there is ever a topic at the forefront of your business to which we can be a helpful resource.
