Native Plant Garden

Several years ago Crossroads was awarded a grant from the Audubon at Home Plants for Birds Burke Grant program. Crossroads was one of six faith communities in Northern Virginia that were awarded $1,250 for native plants to create a demonstration garden. The goal of the Burke Grant program is to support network Plants for Birds activities that will increase the visibility, reach and impact of Audubon’s Plants for Birds programming across the country. With this grant, Crossroads converted the existing beds in front of Entrance 1 into native plant beds. These native plant gardens will be used to educate everyone who visits Crossroads on the importance of native plant gardens throughout our communities. Jesus taught us to be good stewards of the whole Earth and Crossroads is committed to showing the way!
