Hale Garden

Join us for a walk around the Hale Community Garden. The Hale Community Garden is a project managed by Live, Work, Eat, Grow. The garden, a 5-acre parcel which already features 65 community garden plots, a solar greenhouse, beehives, and much more, will soon be the home to the Plan SWVA Natives Community-Supported Propagation Center, led by the NRVRC. Come learn more about this growing collaboration.

Prices Fork

Join us for a walking tour of the recently completed Prices Fork Revitalization Project. This highly collaborative project includes the renovation of the former Prices Fork Elementary School into 16 mixed-income apartments for persons 55 and better and the creation of Millstone Kitchen, Moon Hollow Brewery, and El Ranchero Mexican restaurant. Sixteen additional mixed-income rental units were completed in June of this year.

McDonald Hollow

Want to get a closer look at regional trail connectivity and forestland preservation? Join us for a short, .5 mile hike at Brush Mountain Park. The tour will feature the newly opened McDonald Hollow Trail Network and a conversation about the role of local government in trail development.
