The nature of our work.
We are an urban greening organization; an intrepid non-profit made up of passionate people who believe urban green space is critical to a healthy, vital, sustainable city. Our work is to restore public land/spaces (so often abandoned/forgotten and publicly owned) so that they are environmentally stable and beautiful. We advocate for green infrastructure in our city to support healthy outdoor places. We work with the City and other partners to harness the full potential of Richmond’s green assets.
It’s no coincidence that our three signature projects are near the river — we see the James, with its extraordinary heritage, as the heart of our city. Removing concrete and planting trees near the river helps decrease storm water run-off and protect not only our water source but also the entire Chesapeake Bay watershed.
