Richmond Education Gardens and Apiary
Once completed, the Gardens will provide a new place in our communities to promote education programs about natural and organic gardening methods and our environment.
The Gardens are being designed to include a hobbyist apiary surrounded by native vegetable, wildflower, butterfly, wall and rain gardens. Each of the elements will include a plaque with basic information and supporting website references describing these elements’ purpose and other relative educational information. The Gardens will promote the following values: access to resources, community ownership of process and product, localization, empowerment and collaboration, healthy eating, and organic and environmentally sound gardening and landscaping practices. These values will be taught through honeybee stewardship, demonstrating garden soil preparation and composting practices, using local seeds and transplants, and cultivating and growing native vegetables, wildflowers and plants at home and throughout our community.
for all the exciting details. For more information regarding the Richmond Gardens project, contact us at
