Charlottesville Insights w/ Jeff Gaffney
The City of Waynesboro Public Works Day ’13, is a one-day event taking place this Saturday, from 10 am until 2 pm at the former landfill at N. Winchester Avenue, just off of Delphine Avenue and 6th Street, behind the Recycling Center (shuttle service is available). The Waynesboro Department of Public Works will highlight the Landfill past/present/future, the South River trout hatchery/museum, the Crozet Tunnel, the Appalachian Trail, and the Farmer’s Market. The Waynesboro Woman’s Club will be sponsoring the second year of cooperative planting of meadow with wildflowers on the top of the landfill. In addition, some of the 100 acres of landfill trails will be open again for the day, featuring a scavenger hunt sponsored by the Virginia Master Naturalists, so that the public can experience this community asset first-hand. In addition to planting and hiking activities, we will offer a unique blend of hands-on activities for children like kite making/flying, riding a bike loop, rustic furniture making, and informational presentations for adults (such as permaculture gardening, raw vegan diet, hOURS Economy, composting and other conservation levers, Transition America). We will feature Mountain Dulcimer & Old-time Banjo Music in honor of the Landfill’s past. We hope that our citizens can discover how the city’s community assets might work together for community improvement, and consider being part of the growing resurgence of activism and responsibility that is emerging in our community.
