Church Memorial Garden Project
Another upcoming event will take place on April 23 at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Gainesville. It’s been nearly 10 years since the historic Black church became the target of an arsonist. KPWB will support the Prince William Chapter of Jack and Jill, the Master Gardeners of Prince William (MGPW) and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Prince William Unit Environment and Natural Resources as they work to beautify the memorial garden at the historic site. KPWB is providing shovels and materials, while Jack and Jill is expecting between 30 to 50 volunteers. Together, they will plant a variety of native plants to beautify the garden.
