FDA Assists with Park and Alley Maintenance in The Fan


The Trees and Parks Committee partners with residents, the City of Richmond, and VCU to keep our parks and alleys looking beautiful. The Committee holds several events a year, including Adopt-A-Tree Programs, coordinated park gardening, and alley cleanups. It's a never-ending job, and takes a community to keep up. Help is always needed and encouraged!
