Friday Mornings in the Garden

Image

Hey Folks!

Meet in the lobby of New Hall West Friday morning (April 27) to catch a ride down to the Garden. We will leave at 9:30 and be back by 12:30. Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit grubby and bring a water bottle.

 This Friday we will be planting onions and potatoes, mulching and weeding in the  Education Garden and harvesting asparagus. So come on down!

PLEASE RSVP for this event via our  Facebook event or email our Garden Education Coordinator Chelsea Graves at cbgraves@vt.edu. If you RSVP and then are unable to attend please let Chelsea know so she won’t wait on you. Space is limited if you need a ride in the van. If you want to drive yourself that’s wonderful but please let Chelsea know so she can plan enough work to keep everyone busy!

Below are directions to the garden, carpooling is encouraged, please coordinate with your fellow volunteers. Give yourself about 20 minutes to get to the garden from campus.

-Take Prices Fork Road going away from campus.
– Continue for about 3 miles, make a right on McCoy Road.
-Continue for about 3 miles, make a left on Whitehorne Road at the sign for Kentland Farm.
-Take the first entrance to the farm on the right (just before the official entrance at the office building).
-Follow the dirt/gravel road to the garden plots. Park near other cars at the shade trees.
-The Dining Services Garden at Kentland Farm will be near the entrance on the right near all of the first buildings you see.

Getting here can be a bit tricky so this our Garden Education Coordinator’s Chelsea cell number in case you get lost 571-271-8004.
