Navigators USA, Chapter 36, is secular, open to any gender, orientation, ability, and familial makeup. With an emphasis on family participation, the chapter draws kids from the wider community as well as WUU. Activities include camp-outs, hikes, outdoor games, nature orientation, an annual pinewood derby, and community service. After a hiatus for safety due to the pandemic, the chapter looks forward to restarting programming in 2022.
Williamsburg Community Growers is dedicated to educating the public on the benefits of growing our own food. They provide gardening space for individuals, families, and organizations within their 10-acre site in James City County. More than 100 people are tending their own small plots, and WCG maintains a row crop “teaching farm” where volunteers learn the fundamentals of growing fruits and vegetables. Approximately half of their harvest is donated to local food banks—the fresh produce being a very welcome addition to the canned and dry goods available. WCG has grown its fresh produce donations from 600 lbs. in 2018 to over 3,000 lbs. in 2021. Organizations that have benefited from WCG donations include Williamsburg House of Mercy, Grove Christian Outreach, St. Olaf Food Pantry, FISH Inc., and Hampton Roads Refugee Relief.
