Garden interns in the news!

As the summer comes to a close, we’d like to share an article by UVA Today featuring the U.Va. Community Garden and some other great student-run food-growing operations around the area. Our interns, Connor and Maggie, managed the Community Garden and worked at Bellair Farm as part of the inaugural Charlottesville Sustainable Agriculture Internship. Look for a recap of the summer in the coming days. Thanks, Connor and Maggie!

In fact, as the new semester get’s started, we’d like to celebrate with a Welcome Party! Swing by the garden at the corner of McCormick and Alderman Roads across from O’Hill Dining Hall between 3 and 5 p.m. this Sunday, August 30th!

Students, faculty, staff, families, and community members are all welcome to come anytime between 3 and 5, but we’ll start out with a short meeting/tour of the garden so we can appreciate the hard work done this summer by our interns! We’ll then get our hands dirty and tend to the tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, sun jewel melons, basil, arugula, and more! We’ll get to know each other over food, including local veggies and snacks from our farmer friends around the area.
See you in the garden!
