Meet The Community Garden Team

 

 

The Community Garden bloomed from a plan that students from Richmond Community High School created in 2014. Their vision for the open space and greenhouse next to the school is for a safe and nurturing place for residents and students to teach, learn, grow, collaborate, and build a sense of community around healthy food.  . We desire to help preserve and protect the environment and promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle through bringing awareness of gardening. We believe that a community garden is one of the attributes of a remarkable community. Immediate plans for the Community Garden include an orchard, raised bed plots for residents to grow food, and a flower cutting garden
