Tricycle Gardens is a nonprofit organization focused on bringing sustainable agriculture, nutrition education and healthy food access to Richmond, Virginia. Tricycle Gardens was founded in 2002 when a small group of neighbors in Church Hill built a community garden on land owned by the Better Housing Coalition. Since then, our organization has engaged thousands of neighbors and shown that the simple act of growing food is an incredibly powerful way to change the overall health of our community. This work addresses a myriad of challenging issues, and ultimately our mission is about FOOD.
