This past Saturday we were visited by UVA’s Project SERVE. From their website, one can read “U.Va.’s Project SERVE is an annual event with a twofold mission: to introduce incoming students to service and service learning opportunities at U.Va. and to familiarize participants with some of the local agencies that rely on the continued dedication and commitment of the University community.” More information is available at http://www.virginia.edu/orientation/?page_id=40
Approximately a dozen volunteers spent two hours with us and completed weeded, raked out, planted and watered one of our eight raised beds. They were in great spirits and worked hard. They also tackled another greatly overgrown bed and got it half done too. We also found some adorable baby rabbits.
Thanks to Shaina Schaffer and Katelyn Ditzler for their project leadership and to the whole team for their service and companionship!
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!
