Tricycle Gardens

Tricycle Gardens is working to improve Richmond, VA’s notorious food deserts. It distributes garden produce to the city through its Healthy Corner Store Program and four-season farm stand. They also provide food skills education and advice for eating healthy on a budget.

Tricycle Gardens has done ground breaking work engaging individuals, community centers,  non-profits, businesses and the city government to bring a collective effort to restore our urban ecologies and create beautiful public spaces throughout Richmond, Virginia.  From hands-on experiential learning to more formal workshops and gardening programs, we are leading the way for a new understanding of how, by working together, we can create a healthier community for all.

By bringing urban agriculture, food skills education and healthy food access to greater Richmond, Tricycle Gardens will improve the environmental landscape and strengthen the ecosystems of the local neighborhoods. Through partnerships with the community, schools, neighborhood youth and their families we are starting a grassroots movement for food security that will transform the health and well-being of our community for future generations.
