GWR’s Neighborhood
Tree Planting Program

Since January of 2013, Groundwork Richmond is working to help improve Richmond’s tree canopy, particularly in our community’s under‐treed neighborhoods. Working closely with the City, we are reaching out to residents who might want to “adopt” a tree and care for it during the first few years. So far we have planted 104 trees in the Santa Fe, Coronado and Iron Triangle neighborhoods!

Please click the video to learn more about this program. GWR’s Adopt-a-tree Program has also been featured on Groundwork USA’s website, under “Network News” http://groundworkusa.org/2013/07/30/gw-richmond-works-on-urban-greening-program/.

NPS & GWUSA Highlight
Inspiring Groundwork Youth

Groundwork Trusts from across the U.S. nominated seven youth for in-depth profiles that explore their passion and their commitment to the community and the natural environment around them, and highlight their growth as inspiring leaders and aspiring environmental professionals. Our very own Sheena Conn was selected! Click HERE to learn more.

This year, we will create a vision and design with youth and community members, and install improvements like trees, community art, benches, and other amenities – limited only by our imaginations – and funding, of course!
