If you haven't heard, Downtown Greens is working to purchase and conserve a parcel of land that contains living wetlands and mature trees as well as the last farmland in Fredericksburg. It is in the industrial park adjacent to Braehead Farm and would allow us to collaborate with several local groups and expand our reach in the community.
Downtown Greens has brought the community together for more than 25 years. A second campus for the organization would mean conservation of the last agricultural space in the city of Fredericksburg, additional outdoor education and recreation opportunities, and a protected wetlands space that is nurtured and open to the public.
Visit our Braehead Buffer page for more information, including detailed information about our plans for the space, a letter from Board President Brad Smith about the project, community letters of support, and more.
Please support us if you're able, and get in touch if you want to make a larger, tax-deductible investment in this exciting and ambitious community project!
