Jardin by the River opens today, September 12th at 8am! Come see us on the Island Park, right off 219 at the River Bridge, drive through the park, and it’s at the old Ronceverte Swimming Pool.
The Jardin is an initiative of Gateway Industries, developing a new approach to adding business to the Ronceverte Community, employment and training opportunities for folks with disabilities, a work cooperative with other local non-profit agencies and local commercial businesses, and local affordable products in partnership with rural health concerns.
The garden offers a welcome respite from the day, a calming, beautiful environment to stroll along, sit within, and enjoy. Stop by today to take it all in, and please browse our shop where we offer local goodies, crafts, art, plants, herbs, flowers, and more!
We will be open from 8a-4p on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. If you would like to gain access at another time, please call our office and one of our staffers will assist you, 304.645.3165. We are at your service.
To help support our efforts and expand our facilities and services, we have held a “Derby Day Run for the Roses” fundraiser for 25 years on the first Saturday in May at the WV State Fair Grounds.
Hundreds of participants and many local businesses supported the effort, and enjoyed fantastic food, live music & entertainment, a fruitful silent auction, the Kentucky Derby on large-screen TVs throughout the venue, a Spectacular Hat Contest, raffles, door prizes, and more!
Country House (who was awarded the win after Maximum Security was disqualified) took the crown at the Derby in the most exciting two minutes in sports.
Thank you to all for your support! We can’t wait to see you next year!
