File photo. File photo.

Each week, C-VILLE’s Green Scene page takes a look at local environmental news. The section’s bulletin board has information on local green events and keeps you up to date on statewide happenings. Got an event or a tip you’d like to see here and in the paper? Write us at 

Good eats guide: The Piedmont Environmental Council’s 2013 Buy Fresh, Buy Local guides are hitting mailboxes now, with information on more than 170 farms, orchards, farmers’ markets, wineries, breweries, restaurants and more in Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson—all offering locally produced agricultural products.

Get out: Outdoor Charlottesville—the recently re-named, re-focused Outdoor Adventure Social Club—is hosting a launch party from 6-8pm Thursday, May 2 at Mono Loco to recruit members and celebrate what’s new: more trips, and a much lower monthly membership fee (just $9). Snack on free appetizers and enter for a chance to win a Blue Ridge Mountain Sports shopping spree.

Take a hike: The Piedmont Group Sierra Club invites you to join a four-mile hike this weekend in Albemarle County’s newest park near Crozet. Meet at Panera Bread in the Barracks Road Shopping Center at 10am on Saturday, May 4 to carpool, or join the group at the trailhead at 11am at 6610 Blackwells Hollow Road, Crozet.
