The Fluvanna Master Gardeners are involved in a number of projects around the county. Find out more about each of these projects below:
Fluvanna Master Gardeners started the children’s garden about 15 years ago at Central Elementary. It was the brainchild of Bertie Bergstrom. She wanted to find a way to help children experience gardening. Gardens help children discover and explore the natural world. If not for the garden at school, many children would not have the opportunity.
Come join Fluvanna’s newest planned community, for Gardeners Only! (No experience necessary!) Water, perimeter fencing, initial tilling and plenty of sunshine are provided. The Fluvanna County Community Garden was developed jointly by the Virginia Cooperative Extension, Fluvanna Master Gardeners and FCPR.
Holland Page House
Master Gardeners will help educate the 3rd graders from Central Elementary in the “kitchen gardening” techniques of the 19th C. at a restored farm house. The house is open to the public and the garden will be developed and on display in the future.
Plant A Row For The Hungry (PAR)
One of our popular community projects is Plant A Row For The Hungry. Four garden plots have been set aside this year at the Fluvanna Community Garden for the sole purpose of growing produce that will be donated to the MACAA Food Bank in Fork Union. In addition, members of the Community Garden and the Master Gardeners contribute by donating some of their surplus harvest to the PAR program.
