Downtown Greens

10:00am-12:00pm, 206 Charles Street Fredericksburg

Every Saturday we head to Downtown Greens, a local community garden, (it’s about 5 minutes from here) and help with any projects that they need us to do. That might be turning compost piles, weeding, raking, painting or planting. We do more than just gardening. Downtown Greens does a lot of activities for the community. For Halloween, we made a Downtown Greens’ paper mache sculpture that they presented to the community. Downtown Greens also has a hula hooping class for kids so we decorated homemade hula hoops! For Downtown Greens’ annual Down Home Ball, we baked desserts for the events! Last semester, Downtown Greens and UMW worked together to create the Pumpkin Retirement Program. Students donated their old and moldy pumpkins to be used in Downtown Greens’ compost pile to create rich, organic soil. We hope you join us!!
