Williamsburg Community Growers (WCG) has a mission to grow a healthy community ecosystem. Located on 10 acres of land within the Dominion Energy power corridor near the Warhill Sports complex, the urban farm allows community participation along with harvesting local produce that is shared with those in need.


WCG is grant-funded and donations keep the garden alive along with community plot rentals.


Harvest is grown for donation purposes and is currently shared with Grove Community Outreach, St. Olaf’s Church and Old Towne Medical and Dental.


“Last year, we were able to donate approximately 4,000 pounds of locally-grown produce.” Sam Pereira, farm manager.
