Come help us start our third season at our Community Farm! Even though it’s still chilly outside, we and our partners at Loudoun Hunger Relief are getting excited for spring at the Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows and growing food for those in need! Seeding for the upcoming growing season will kick off in February. Volunteers are the backbone of our efforts at the Community Farm, so please considering spending a few hours helping out! We’re thrilled with the progress that the farm has made in its first year of operations. Come out to Roundabout Meadows to help make 2020 even more successful!

Building Bike and Pedestrian Connections in Charlottesville and Albemarle

We’re working with a diverse coalition of organizations and communities to envision and implement a comprehensive network of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure that is safe, inclusive, and useful for transportation in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.

This work was made possible by a Strengthening Systems Grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.

There are lots of ways to get involved:


We teamed up with Shenandoah National Park and Trout Unlimited to remove the old crossing at the Whiteoak Canyon trailhead and replace it with a brand new bridge. Damaged by years of flooding, the crossing was no longer safe to drive across, blocked wildlife like brook trout, Virginia’s state freshwater fish, from accessing their natural habitat in the Park, and degraded water quality downstream. Now hikers will once again be able to drive across Cedar Run to the upper parking lot while fish and other aquatic species can swim freely in the revitalized stream!  

Funding for this project was provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF), Orvis, The Nimick Forbesway Foundation, and the Ohrstrom Foundation.

When Mickey Came to Town

When Mickey Came to Town is a 30-minute film about a campaign, waged more than twenty years ago, to stop The Walt Disney Company from building an American history-themed park in the historic countryside of the Virginia Piedmont. Learn more >>


We are excited to host (online) a series of films that highlight farms, nonprofits, and community members on a mission to change the way we think and act about food. The films are executive produced by the Prince Charitable Trusts and the Center for Environmental Filmmaking at American University, and created by Aditi Desai and Vanina Harel. View or download the films below.
