Today we had the first of this year’s visits from students UVA’s First Year Leadership Experience program. Seven hard working young men and women came out to the garden and absolutely just plowed their way through the beds. They were weeding, killing spiders, moving mulch, uprooting cinder blocks with their gloved hands and generally just being outstanding. Thankfully a gentle drizzle dripped occasionally or their energy would have just sizzled the soil and calcined the clay.
The beds are looking great and I don’t think that we’ve ever been in such a fine position at this point in the year. Next up, Madison House visits at 4:00 Friday and the UVA Indian Students Association arrives on Sunday afternoon.
Camp Time!Guest VolunteeringJune 29th, 2016Triple 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!
