Please join us in our garden and enjoy being out in nature on the Richmond Greenway for our monthly Second Saturday event. We plant and tend to unique Low Impact Design projects that not only construct beautiful park landscapes but also filter pollutants out of the stormwater.

Activities might include:

  • Planting in our Habitat Garden, Bioswale, Native Grassland, or Rain Garden

  • Tree planting

  • Removal of invasive plants

  • Mulching to protect soil

  • Propagation

  • Tending to native plants

  • And more!

Tools, gloves, water and snacks will be provided. Please remember to bring a reusable water bottle. Wear sturdy shoes and prepare to get dirty. Long sleeves and pants can be helpful when dealing with some weeds, but it can get warm, so dress in layers.

The event will continue rain or shine; if it is raining, we can see the rain garden and bioswale in action!

Students are welcome to do community service and if under 18, please email us for a waiver as parent permission is required.

We are located at 6th St.and Ohio Ave. where they cross the Greenway, If you are looking up directions on the internet, the intersection of 6th and Ohio Ave. will get you there, or use Lincoln Elementary School, Richmond - it is on 6th St. and the Greenway also.

Contact us with any questions. We can also schedule weekday opportunities for groups of 10 or more.

Please join us for a fun day on the Greenway!
