On Wednesday, Sept. 21st we participated in the 25th annual United Way Day of Caring. Megan Borishansky does a wonderful job coordinating the largest volunteer day in the greater Charlottesville area. This year, over 1,900 volunteers went out to hundreds of non-profits and schools, happily donating their time to our community needs. We had three groups choose to volunteer in the garden, including two teams from UVA and one from Westminster Canterbury. Two of the teams were returning from a few years ago and we thank them so much for choosing us AGAIN.
We had a wonderful time and a simply incredible amount of work was accomplished. Over 30 people came and spent the morning in the garden. Even now, two weeks later, I simply have to rub my eyes and take in the difference those 100 person hours made. Come to the garden sometime and see for yourself. Don’t forget, we’re always looking for community members who simply want to spend time volunteering in the garden.
