Williamsburg Community Growers teach Lead Historic Triangle Students

Williamsburg Community Growers (WCG) collaborated with the Lead Historic Triangle (LHT) program on March 7, 2017 to engage selected area high schools students in understanding the local efforts on sustainable urban agriculture. Hugh Burns and Charlie Morse from Williamsburg Community Growers gave the students and representatives from the LHT program a tour of their community garden behind Warhill High School in addition to engaging the students in a surveying project regarding the sustainable BMP and irrigation source near the urban farm area.

Williamsburg Community Growers maintains a community garden and is in development for demonstration plots of a variety of fruits and vegetables, and serve as a resource on gardening, composting, soil treatment, and other agricultural issues for the greater Williamsburg community. Collaborative partners include the Colonial Soil and Water Conservation District and Virginia Dominion Power.
