For anyone located near the Coastal area of Virginia...Free bare root native tree and shrub seedlings will be given away to the community. Open to residents of all localities. Free event. Everyone is welcome. Please bring a large trash bag to place your tree(s) in, as one will not be provided. These trees are provided by the Virginia Forestry Department by way of a generous donation from the Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company. Event is organized by Mohamed and Cheri Elrahhal, Newport News residents. Available while supplies last and are available on a first come, first serve basis.

We do have a tentative variety availability list; however, these are seedlings that are still growing in the mountains of Virginia at the Forestry Department’s facility, and, it all depends on the success rate of the seedlings and how bad our Virginia winter will be.

  • This is from Caleb Phillips: http://www.fallingfruit.org
    “I wanted to let y’all know about a new website called FallingFruit.org.
    It’s a project of myself (a scientist, working on food systems and food
    waste) and a geography researcher in Boulder, Colorado. We both had been
    working on urban foraging maps in other cities and decided to come together
    and create one big interactive map for all of North America, with the hopes
    that the many folks currently mapping urban food sources in isolation (such
    as yourselves) can come together in one place. We’ve put a huge amount of
    work into the site, which is a totally non-profit and open (source and
    data). We’ve loaded the map with all the data we could find on the
    Internet, preserving as much about the authorship and sources as
    possible. We’ve even pulled in municipal data when available. Give the
    site a look and tell us what you think. We’d love your thoughts and
