I know everyone’s been busy getting into the swing of things for the fall semester, but don’t get so busy that you miss the beauty all around you! Come join us this Thursday, September 21st at 10am in the parking lot of Red Rock Wilderness Overlook Regional Park!
We will be meeting on Edwards Ferry Rd by the Grainery/Stable Ruins and then hiking the White Trail.
The white trail is a 1.2-mile loop trail with an amazing view of the Potomac River and is rated as easy to moderate on AllTrails.
There has been some rain recently that may have washed out parts of the trail, if that is the case we will be taking the blue trail to the overlook as an out-and-back. Any changes to the intended route will be determined day of based on recommendations from NOVA Parks and their Rangers.
Horticulturist Kyra will be there leading the hike with their emergency backpack, but please remember to bring appropriate shoes, your own water, bug spray, and sunscreen.
We cant wait to frolic in the fall foliage together!
NOVA’s Horticulture Club and Program is excited to announce the return of its annual plant sale in the Loudoun Campus greenhouse! This year, we’re selling new varieties of annuals, bedding plants, and indoor plants that we’ve never before carried! This includes more options for shade and greater color diversity. There are 13 different types of plants to choose from including Geraniums, Angelonia, Torenia, and New Guinea Impatiens. Each 5.5” student-grown plant will be $10 and we can only accept payment by cash or check. The greenhouse will be open on Tuesday and Thursday, April 11 and 13 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. If you’re unable to come out to the Loudoun campus greenhouse, the Horticulture Club will also be participating in this year’s Leesburg Flower and Garden festival! You can find their booth at the intersection of Kings St and Market St in downtown Leesburg, as well as week full of fun and flowers!
If you have any questions, please call or email Horticulturist Kyra Longacre, KLongacre@nvcc.edu, at 703-948-7754
