Please join us for our very special community day of service on Monday, January 21st in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We are looking forward to hosting our community families, students, and our neighbors as we celebrate by coming together to work in our parks on the Richmond Greenway. The Watershed Project will be hosting at two sites this year as we work to complete the new park at Carlson Meadow and work at 17th-20th on our rain gardens and bioswales.
As the rains have begun to launch the planting season, we’ve been planting our new bioswale at Carlson Meadow. On the MLK Day of Service, we’ll be continuing to plant native plants, and work on several projects to complete the new park, in partnership with Goundwork Richmond. Projects for the day include creating a mosaic trash can, mulching, and building a bulletin board kiosk. We’re looking forward to hosting families and resident neighbors to share the excitement of transforming a barren, rundown space into a vibrant, green, tree-lined park for residents.
We will also be hosting various projects on the Greenway near Unity Park at 17th-20th as we prepare our new bioswales for planting. We look forward to sharing the excitement of transforming the Richmond Greenway and Unity Park as we tend our rain gardens and trees. Urban Tilth and Dirt World will also be hosting community projects so there will be lots to do!
