ROMNEY URBAN GARDEN (RUG)
CHS HORT announces partnership with Historic Charleston Foundation & New Israel Reformed Episcopal Church

Romney Urban Garden is a small urban garden located at the end of Romney Court in the Upper Neck of the peninsula.  In 2014, with seed money provided by the Historic Charleston Foundation (HCF), the youth of New Israel Reformed Episcopal Church set out to rehabilitate a vacant lot owned by the church.  Neighbors, church members, and HCF spent hours clearing the lot. On top of that, they added nine beds that are rented on an annual basis, constructed a mosaic, and installed a pizza oven.  The parks has been maintained through this partnership throughout the years.

CHS Hort is thrilled to join HCF and New Israel Reformed Episcopal Church to ensure the future of this important community asset.  CHS Hort will help spearhead efforts for volunteer days for garden maintenance, assist in future development and implement urban garden educational programs.

Email office@chashortsoc.org or call the office at 843.579.9922 for more information about volunteer opportunities.  Our first workday is Saturday, October 24 from 9am-11am.

Future Workdays (9am-11am each day):  December 12, February 20, April 17, May 15 & June 12.   Stay tuned for details & sign ups!

Volunteers from CHS Hort, HCF & NIREC came together to clean out the garden in October!

October workday was a huge success and lots of fun!

Members of all three organizations cleared out raised beds to prepare for fall planting.
