Garden goal: Produce a healthier community

If you visit the Southern Virginia Botanical Gardens at South Boston’s Edmunds Park this spring, you’ll find the “Healthy Harvest Community Garden,” a 30’ x 100’ strip of land designed to address the top two health issues in Halifax County: diabetes and heart disease.


If you would like to help plant or harvest the crops or help maintain the garden, make plans to attend a community information meeting Tuesday, March 20 at 6 p.m. at the Washington Coleman Community Center.

After four long years of hoping to plant a line of flowering trees along the entrance to the Southern Virginia Botanical Gardens, Agnes Gregory’s vision has come true.

All it took was bringing the right players together: Winfall Nurseries in Gladys, Mitch Conner of Conner and Conner Enterprises and South Boston Memorials, plus a digging crew of Master Gardeners.

Last fall 14 welcoming Red Rocket crepe myrtles were planted.

Beside each tree, a carved brick was installed in memory of loved ones or in honor of those who have been especially important members of the SVB Gardens.
