Information for Evergreen Cemetery Volunteers
The entrance is on Evergreen Road. To get there, take the Nine Mile Road east exit off of I-64. Turn right on to Evergreen road. The turn is right across from the Henrico Government Center. Follow Evergreen Road until just after it crosses over I-64. Turn in at the Four Cemeteries sign. Follow signs to the work area and parking area.
I recommend you wear heavy shoes or boots. There is broken glass, pieces of rusty metal etc. on the site. We usually work 2 to 3 hours but you are free to come when you can and stay as long as you can. There is no water available so bring your own water / beverage. Also, there are no restroom facilities so plan for that.
Recommended tools to bring are: heavy duty steel rake/bow rake; limb loppers; clippers; good, heavy gloves to handle glass, briars, etc. I also bring many tools and pairs of gloves for those who don’t have the equipment or gloves.
