Renew Richmond Farm Fundraiser

Several years ago, Renew Richmond worked with community members to transform a 1.5-acre parcel of land into a youth farm, which we call Farmstrong. Today, we are expanding the farm, and your support will help unlock its full potential.

Story

Founded in 2009, Renew Richmond is a nonprofit organization that empowers young people to create greener, healthier, more self-empowered communities through hands-on education in agriculture and environmental sustainability.

Farmstrong rests on the last remaining parcel of land from what was once a farming community located in what is now Richmond's East End. In 2015, after years of vacancy, Renew Richmond revived it as a community farm to engage youth and community members in hands-on, skills-based projects in agriculture and environmental sustainability to promote food access, career opportunities, and educational advancement. Today, we are in the final stages of an effort to renovate, expand, and unlock the farm's potential as a vibrant community greenspace and resource for youth engagement and education.

We have built amazing momentum, with Virginia Outdoors Foundation recently awarding us a grant of $25,000. Now we are asking you to join with your friends in the community to help us match, and possibly go beyond, Virginia Outdoor Foundation's generous support so we can achieve the following goals:

  • $25,000 (match) - Acquire ownership of the farm: Purchasing Farmstrong will give us the utmost stability and security to conduct youth engagement programming and serve the community.
  • $35,000 - Refurbish/expand shed to increase storage for harvest: We will be able to efficiently water our crops and store the harvest for community distribution.
