Olmsted Planting Dates

See Olmsted Initiative Page under Our Focus for more information about the garden!

Please join us at our Olmsted Tribute Garden, located at 1542 Armistead Bridge Road at Jeff Robertson Park, for the planting of Spring Perennials on October 27, 2023 (rain date November 3). If you have your own garden tools and gloves, please bring them.  If not, we will have some gloves and tools available for your convenience. We have a nice variety of native perennials to plant that will support our local pollinators and add beauty and interest along the Elizabeth River Trail. We invite you to be part of this wonderful event. 
And thank you all for a fantastic planting event on October 28, 2022 and November 10, 2022.  We successfully planted 17 native trees
, 124 native shrubs and 1850 perennials. You made a difference!
