It’s Earth Week – Help Us Celebrate!
Check out the activities happening this weekend!
Earth Day Service Projects at the Urban Farm
It’s the season of rebirth and rejuvenation, so please join the Tricycle Gardens crew at the urban farm this Saturday, April 23, in conjunction with the city’s official Earth Day celebration. We’ll be offering tours from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm and a chance to get dirty in Richmond’s only urban farm.
Bring the whole family or roll in solo. For every two hours of service you and your family give Tricycle Gardens you’ll receive one of our fine, heirloom seedlings to jumpstart your own garden. We have numerous projects for all skill levels of workers from weeding and seeding to trellis construction and soil prep.
Earth Day at Plant Zero
If you’re not up for an afternoon of farm service projects, swing by our table at the official Earth Day Festival, just down the road by Plant Zero. We’ll have seedlings, rain barrels and other products for sale. Our knowledgeable crew will be happy to help you with any gardening questions. The Tricycle Gardens table will be near the Main Stage from 12:00 – 7:00 pm.
Earth Day continues on Easter Sunday at the Green Acre
Looking for something to do on Easter Sunday? Want to give back to your community while enjoying the beautiful weather? Join Tricycle Gardens on Sunday, April 24 at the Science Museum of Virginia, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, to spread some love! Spring is here and in following with our permaculture design methods we are ready to add some of the nitrogen fixers, dynamic accumulators, mulch and insectary plants to our corner of the Green Acre. Come on out and get dirty!
The Green Acre garden plot is located behind the domed building of the Science Museum off Broad Street. Please bring your own gloves!
