Help Needed For October CVN Events

Message From the Chair
CVN has had a successful last couple of weeks: CVN was interviewed on camera by Arlington County at  Fall Garden Day at Claremont Elementary School.  A number of new CVN members attended Growing Native Seed Collection with ACE.

This coming Sunday is the final garden event at the Arlington Traditional School for 2012, so I hope some of you members can check it out!  There are still a few more spots left for the Vegetable Gardening with AFAC.  Finally, I hope to see you on November 3rd at Community Residences Clean-up, which is CVN's biggest event of the year!
