In the Fall of 2010 we started an Orchard in Hanover County. Our long term plan is to have a variety of fruit trees, nut trees, fruit vines, and fruit bushes as well as bees to pollinate the plants. This will allow us to have a potential source of future income as well as a way to bring fresh fruit into our neighborhood in Richmond.

This Spring we are planting more trees and bushes in the Wingnut Orchard. We are adding blueberry bushes, huckleberries, apple trees, grape vines, kiwi vines, fig trees, mulberry trees, persimmon and more! If you would like to help with the Orchard please get in touch. Starting next week we will be getting plants, planting wildflowers, hopefully getting some bees etc. Let us know if you want to tag along and we can learn together. Or if you have some awesome skills or knowledge you would want to share that would be great too!

Why an Orchard?

Some folks might wonder why we are planting an orchard. We are an urban collective. We really like being in an urban environment- it keeps us visible, involved, accessible, etc. We don’t want to escape society, we want to play part in changing it. But we also recognize that the lack of space within an urban environment limits our ability to produce many things and engage in many projects that might help us create a more self-sustaining collective.

We have gotten a bunch of awesome new books in the past 2 weeks for the Wingnut Radical Lending Library. Some we picked up at the Monroe Park Occupation, some at Charlottesville Anarchist Bookfair, and some we got through being friends of PM Press.We are missing some of the books from Charlottesville- at Food Not Bombs in Monroe Park last Sunday someone picked up the wrong Milk Crate. If you know where those 7 books are please let us know, we were really excited to share them.

Come by during Open Hours to browse and check out books. Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm. If you are interested in helping facilitate Open Hours or participating in any of the projects that come out of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective please get in touch!

The neighborhood kids have come up with a couple activities that they are organizing during Wingnut Open Hours. If anyone enjoys hanging out with kids and engaging in fun activities with them, please come to Open Hours to hang out! We could definitely use some help during Open Hours, because 5-10-more kids are a lot to entertain and keep busy (even if they are doing a lot of the entertaining).

During Wednesday Open Hours (4-9) Larry and De’Shari will be hosting their very own Magic Show. Come prepared to be entertained and blown away by their skills.

During Friday Open Hours (4-9) Deshawn is hosting a Book Club, where kids talk about the part of whatever book they have been reading that week.

Generally, the kids are also really excited about Craft night on Wednesdays, Movie nights when we can borrow a projector, and playing some of the board games we have here at the Wingnut. (more…)
