Williamsburg Community Growers is a 501(c)(3) organization whose vision is to grow Williamsburg's healthy community food ecosystem. WCG operates a community garden and experimental teaching farm located on a 10-acre parcel of land located within the Dominion Energy power corridor between Warhill High School and the Warhill Sports Complex (WSC). Launched by the Colonial Soil and Water Conservation District (CSWCD) in 2015, WCG began managing the property in 2016 and secured a land use agreement with James City County in 2017. WCG continues to develop the space with support from CSWCD and other community, regional, state and national partners.
Over the past three years, WCG has donated thousands of pounds of fresh, locally grown produce to community organizations and low-income neighborhoods, facilitated dozens of field trips and educational opportunities with local schools, provided locally grown produce for farm to school cafeteria programming, and helped demonstrate real conservation opportunities to protect our surrounding natural resources.
We can't wait to see what the coming years will bring, and we hope you'll join us to find out.
