Sharing the Joy of Planting

The Park and Trust are collaborating in many ways to "green" Richmond and seed Victory Gardens throughout the City. Here are just a few examples on a growing list.

Reading about history isn't the same thing as talking to the people who made it.

And that's exactly what visitors to the national park in Richmond can do from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Friday.

A Mexican folk dance, an African-American gospel song, a restored World War II era school building, and a happy principal.

"There are two things you can give to children, in general: roots and wings," said Peppina Chang, the principal of the Richmond College Prep Schools. And today her preschoolers are getting their wings in a building whose roots dig deep into the heart of modern American history — although those roots had almost crumbled.
