Va. To Create New State Park in Loudoun County

CBS DC

RICHMOND, Va. — A new state park is being created in Loudoun County.

Gov. Bob McDonnell said Friday that the Old Dominion Land Conservancy of Purcellville has reached an agreement with the Department of Conservation and Recreation to donate 600 acres for a state park.

Virginia has 36 state parks open for the public. The new property will join state lands in Stafford, Shenandoah, Gloucester, Henry and Albemarle counties that are in various stages of development as future state parks.

The state park system hosts more than eight million visits per year with an annual economic impact to the surrounding communities of about $206 million.

Early Sign-Up Suggested for Va. CSAs

CBS DC

RICHMOND, Va. — State agricultural officials say it’s not too early to sign up for subscriptions to one of Virginia’s 100-plus community supported agriculture farms.

Called CSAs, farms that have the programs provide a steady supply of fresh produce to customers by selling subscriptions. A subscription typically allows customers to either visit their local farm to pick up their share of the bounty or collect their fruits and vegetables at a central drop-off point. Some subscribers can get special rates in exchange for sweat equity.

Besides fresh produce, some CSAs offer eggs, honey, cheese, butter and cut flowers.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services advises consumers to sign up early because memberships fill up so fast.

To find a farm, go to VirginiaGrown.com and select “CSA.”
