RVA's Urban Farm

Tricycle is Richmond’s leading urban agriculture nonprofit organization, and they are on a mission to grow a healthy future through urban agriculture. Since breaking ground on their first garden, they have engaged thousands of neighbors and shown that the simple act of growing food is an incredibly powerful way to impact the overall health of our community.

Each month they invite volunteers to participate in a variety of farm tasks including compost management, pruning, weeding, transplanting seedlings, cleaning up the farm, and mulching. The produce grown at this one-acre urban farm goes directly back into communities with limited access to healthy food choices through programs like the Corner Farm--RVA's Healthy Corner Store Initiative and our Four Season Farm Stands.

Together we will work to grow healthy food and healthy communities!

There is a port a potty on site. There is no potable water on site – volunteers will need to bring a water bottle with them to the project. The entire workday is outdoors so bring sunscreen, hats, snacks, etc, and wear protective clothing and closed toe shoes you don't mind getting dirty. Please dress according to the weather. This is a family-friendly opportunity!

All volunteers who plan to attend must be registered, either as an individual, or via the team functionality. This includes youth. To learn more about our Team Functionality, please view our Volunteer with a Group page.

If allowed on the project, any youth volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a parent-signed youth waiver to the project.
The waiver can be found after sign up on the confirmation page or by visiting our Volunteer with Youth page.
