The Piedmont Virginia Community College Community Garden has been in existence since 2008. This student-led effort exists for many reasons, including hands-on education, student involvement, leadership and personal development. We also have community members, staff, and faculty who volunteer in the garden. Most of the produce grown is donated to feed the local hungry through The Haven, a multi-agency effort working with the homeless, and the Thomas Jefferson Area food bank, though some goes to feed our laboring students! Additionally, we also have summer camps and other groups that visit the garden.
Triple C Camp will be coming back to the garden this summer several different times, the first of which will be June 29th. We were very impressed last summer at the energy and enthusiasm of these young men and women. Come and join us for a few hours this morning - weather permitting, of course!
