1st and Market Garden
The 1st Street Garden is an Urban Tilth project that started in 2014. The lot at the dead end of 1st Street along the creek was once a playground. After the economic recession the playground was never repaired or built again. As a result, the lot became a magnet for illegal dumping and garbage. The lot is now a beautiful garden that host monthly volunteer events. It is visited by neighbors daily. North Richmond is a food desert, and with limited food options the garden provides fresh produce in one of the most impacted communities in Richmond. Join a volunteer event and learn about the vegetables, fruit, and herbs growing in your neighborhood. The fenceless garden allows access all day.
