Bring your school group, club, service organization, or corporate group to help us create a beautiful native garden on the Richmond Greenway!
Between now and early spring, your group has the opportunity to come help us plant native plants in our bioswales. Planting is the final, most fun step in creating a bioswale, and it’s incredibly satisfying to see the results of the project afterward.
Our bioswales are designed to slow and filter storm water, as well as trap floating trash debris. We choose native plants for their tolerance both to flooding conditions in the winter and to drought in the summers, and for their ability to filter out toxins and oils from the storm water. Along the outside edges of our bioswales, we also plant habitat gardens with native plants with long blooming periods to attract and provide wild spaces for birds, pollinators, and animals.
We invite you to bring a group to spend a morning working together outside, making a visible impact in the community, and helping people and wildlife by creating beautiful native habitat gardens. We provide gloves, tools, snacks, and water in addition to a fun, educational and meaningful service activity.
Please contact us to find out more or schedule a service day. See you on the Greenway!
