Continuing a tradition of service

The collaboration called “Friends of the Richmond Greenway” and hundreds of volunteers came together for a special tradition honoring Martin Luther King Jr. and Richmond’s environment. The “day of service” included picking up trash, weeding, and planting native flowers and shrubs along the Greenway. “I got there and I was impressed that the community could come together to create something so beautiful in a town that has so much negativity pinned to it.” A photo essay shows the activities and all the people involved, on Richmond Pulse.
