Beginning with those who sprouted the idea for a community garden and brought it to life, the little garden in the South Norfolk Historic District continues to bloom and grow, thanks to the volunteers who have given thousand of hours, and thanks to the generous donations of materials, plants & seeds, soils & fill, tools, machinery, and funds for expenses.

Support from South Norfolk and the city of Chesapeake has been remarkable, however, fundraising efforts are as continuous as the need for support for garden maintenance and growth.

The South Norfolk Neighborhood Watch and the Community Garden project have been recognized by the Chesapeake Environmental Improvement Commission, Chesapeake Community Programs, the Elizabeth River Project, and Cox Conserves Heroes and have been featured (twice!) in the Chesapeake Clipper.
