October Events

On Saturday, October 10, we'll be doing Adopt-A-Spot: Gardening at Indian River / Oaklette Bridge from 9:30 AM to Noon.   Meet at the Oaklette United Methodist Church, 520 Oaklette Drive, Chesapeake and walk over to the bridge.    We will do some fall gardening and maintenance around the bridge and the newly planted trees.   We may also do some roadside cleanup along Indian River Road if we have enough volunteers.   Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves. Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.

Our next regular meeting is on Thursday, October 15 at 7 PM in the Social Hall at the Oaklette United Methodist Church.  Councilmember Ella Ward will speak with us on various topics including the role of the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission.  There will be light refreshments and door prizes after the presentation.

Saturday, October 24 is a big Adopt-A-Park Volunteer Work Day at Indian River Park from 9:30 am to Noon.  Meet at the park entrance at Rokeby Ave. and Main St. (2001 Rokeby Ave.)   We'll be spreading mulch and working on various projects around the park including trail maintenance, invasive plant removal, tending to the native plant garden at the entrance, and trash pickup. The more volunteers that come out, the more that we can accomplish!   Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves. If you can, bring shovels, rakes, pruners, saws and other gardening tools. We will have water and lots of snacks. (We also always encourage folks to bring their own water in reusable bottles to minimize use of plastic bottles). Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.

See our full calendar for all talks and volunteer events this year.  For the latest news and happenings, do like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.   We hope that everyone will be able to make it out to at least one volunteer event to help improve our community.

  1. Planting an herb garden is easy when you create an herb spiral. It saves space and if you place it near your kitchen, you'll be sure to use your homegrown herbs in your recipes. And you can create it and plant it quickly with very little effort.
