Lynchburg Grows

Located in the city's first industrial park, which was built in 1919, Lynchburg Grows! H.R. Schenkel Urban Farm & Environmental Education Center consists of 9 (five original) greenhouses, exceeding 70,000 sq ft, and encompasses an area of 6.5 acres, zoned heavy industrial.  With the help of 2800 volunteers, donating more than 40,000 man hours, from 2005 to 2010, Lynchburg Grows has remediated the land and has successfully completed a $150,000 capital campaign, partnering with Lynchburg College to turn one of the green houses into a aquaculture and educational center. The farm's CSA program has 150 members and, to date, has donated more than 17,000 pounds of food to a local shelter.
