Richmond Grows Gardens

The city encourages the transformation of vacant and underutilized city parcels into productive community or commercial gardens. The program requires groups of people that want to use a parcel to apply for a permit from the city. They are required to buy liability insurance and to show that they have support of the neighbors around the property. Seven gardens have been permitted since the program began in 2012.
