Verner Center for Early Learning in Swannanoa, NC, is an early care and education center providing affordable childcare to families of all income levels. VEG! is a collaboration between Verner, The Roots Foundation, North Carolina at Outward Bound School, and Warren Wilson College.

The mission of the gardens is to provide “sustainable and interactive learning spaces which create community, enrich the Verner educational experience and awaken our children to the natural world.” Fruit and nut trees and shrubs, perennial vegetable beds, wildflower meadows, a living willow tunnel, annual vegetable beds, and much more make up this more than .5 acre permaculture playground.
