Self Sustaining Communities is a Richmond nonprofit that promotes growing food locally, has distributed hundreds of fruit, nut, and olive trees to Richmond families and local gardeners. The organization tries to engages residents – especially youth, elders, and the formerly incarcerated. At the last tree, seed, and vegetable giveaway was a volunteer team from The Remember Us People Project, or TRUPP. The group supports the integration of recently released offenders back into society. The two organizations have a common goal: to grow a sustainably healthy community in Richmond. Read the story on Richmond Pulse.
