Buford Harvest Festival

In partnership with the City Schoolyard Garden, Buford Middle School hosted the 6th annual fall Harvest Festival Friday. Currently, seven of Charlottesville’s schools play home to gardens. During the night, staff and volunteers led tours and taught corn grinding and apple pressing. Launched in 2010, City Schoolyard Garden’s mission is to cultivate academic achievement, health, environmental stewardship, and community engagement through garden-based experiential learning.
