About the club

Started in 2007, the Piedmont Virginia Community College Horticulture and Environmental club has provided students and community members an organic garden for use as a practical learning platform for environmentally sound horticulture.  The founding of an organic vegetable garden encourages more interest for other students, faculty, staff and the community to learn and put in practice environmentally healthy horticulture.

The excess food that is produced by our garden will find its way into the local food stream of the hungry in our community.  As a club we are also interested in encouraging sustainable practices both on our campus and the college’s service region.
