Owl Orchard Community Garden

Owl Orchard grew from the fallow field created for the Reedy Creek Flood Plain project. After a while, neighbors began gardening in the field, taking advantage of its space and sunlight. It lies along Reedy Creek, a tributary of the James River. Because of that, Owl Orchard has a neighborly relationship with all sorts of local wild life that follow the creek all the way up. Several endangered species call Owl Orchard and Reedy Creek home, like pileated woodpeckers and rare turtles. Everything that happens in Owl Orchard has a light footprint. We use organic fertilizers and supplements. We include pro-bee/butterfly/hummingbird enticing blooming plants. Activities will include a garden clean-up. Bring gloves, waders/galoshes, bug repellent.  

This project is a part of Enrichmond Foundation's 24th Earth Day Richmond Celebration, Central Virginia’s premiere and longest running Earth Day event.
