At Pleasant Grove Park, there is room for nature.

A meadow revitalization plan at Pleasant Grove Park, led by volunteer and Master Naturalist Walter Hussy, is an ongoing success story.  Of 950 trees planted around the meadow, only 20 had to be replaced last year.  The original swath of wildflowers and native grasses planted around the meadows to create a pathway for quail has doubled from 20 feet in width to 40.  Evergreen seedlings like pine and cedar that have sprouted in the meadows are being removed by hand.  All of this is done at no cost to the county – the trees and plants and seeds were gotten for free as part of programs through the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries or the Department of Forestry, or a multitude of nonprofits. Hundreds of hours of work is done by volunteers.

A business forum attracted Fluvanna business ownersBusiness owners, workers, and county staff gathered at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church Thursday evening (May 19) to discuss impediments to operating a successful business in Fluvanna County.

The community business forum drew about 40 people, many of whom shared ideas about how Fluvanna can better support its businesses.

“This is your meeting,” said Jason Smith, director of community and economic development, to the gathered business people. “We want feedback and we want to create that action step so that we can continue to improve our process in helping small business and providing what the community needs.”

The Fourth of July this year was dreary and overcast with frequent periods of drizzle and some short bursts of heavy rain. Athletes at Lake Monticello were undeterred.

The annual Spirit 5K run came off on schedule at 7 a.m. Although it drizzled before the start, the runners were mostly dry during the event. The threatening weather did reduce the number of participants this year, but a substantial 164 athletes participated.
