  1. Is there a better way to spend two weeks than standing up for our mountains, streams, and farmlands? Add in solidarity with your neighbors and fellow Virginians, and you have a real winner. Let’s hope that more folks in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads learn about what the governor is allowing to happen in our communal garden and join with us in trying to advocate for an energy policy and economic investment that is clean and sustainable and does not use the power of eminent domain for corporate gain.
