Renewal of Farmstrong

Farmstrong is an agricultural site on nearly 2 acres of land in the East End next to Armstrong High School. Students and community members from the surrounding neighborhoods learn, work in, and care for the plot.

This project is in partnership with Beautiful RVA and the Lewis Ginter Urban Gardener program. Gardens like these will become models for progressive urban sustainability efforts in the City of Richmond and provide fresh, healthy, locally grown fruits, vegetables and flowers to those individuals who have little to no access. Working together, we can create a healthier and more vibrant community through urban greening and beautification. 

Volunteers will assist with ongoing maintenance of Farmstrong through clean ups, weeding, building a hoop house, plantings, pest management, & harvesting. 

Wear clothing appropriate for gardening and brush, which may include long pants, closed toe shoes, gardening gloves, hat, sunscreen and bug spray. Please bring your own water. Tools will be provided but feel free to bring your own. There is not a bathroom on site. 

All volunteers who plan to attend must be registered. This includes youth. If the post indicates adults must be present, youth and adults must register using the team functionality. 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.

Registration will close 12 hours in advance.
