Waller Mill Park invites gardeners of all ages to its Community Giving Garden to participate in the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day, this Saturday, Sept. 28, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Volunteers will perform garden maintenance and install a native plant species educational bed. The Giving Garden is an all-volunteer garden at Waller Mill Park, founded in November 2012 when a volunteer crew of Dominion Virginia Power employees constructed the six-foot fence that surrounds it. The garden brings community groups together to help plant and harvest a vegetable garden from which produce is donated to local charitable organizations. Additionally, the garden serves as an educational tool to teach about crop rotation, the processes of maintaining soil fertility and the different seasonal crops that can be grown in our climate. To learn more about the event, visit www.publiclandsday.org/npld-sites/waller-mill-park or contact Michael VanAudenhove, Waller Mill Park Manager, at 259-3778 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
