In spring of 2020 we completed the Low Line Green which is a reclamation of one and a half acres east of the Flood Wall. The space is capable of capturing and filtering 148,000 gallons of polluted rainwater annually, and will help to improve stormwater quality. We planted thousands of native plants, trees, and shrubs to provide year round beauty, shade, and pollen and nectar for wildlife.
As the pandemic highlighted the importance of greenspace, it also brought to light the disparities in access to public landscapes. We are collaborating with the City of Richmond and other non-profits as part of Mayor Levar Stoney’s “Green Team” to bring more parks to underserved areas in Richmond.
We know that we need our public landscapes now more than ever, and we’re unwavering in our work to ensure they are here for our community for generations to come.
Thank you for your support.
