UPDATE: We received amazing support from our community to help us rebuild the greenhouse. TruTimber removed the tree on Saturday, February 21st, and last week our team worked to replace broken beams and recover the hoophouse with new plastic.

Winter blew into town, and certainly reminded us we are not in charge.

High winds blew covers off in-ground rows, ripped plastic from a hoop house door and dropped a tree on our greenhouse. A blanket of snow covers RVA’s Urban Farm, and our plants are snuggled in the best we can. The impact of the snow and low-temperature nights is still to be seen.
