On Friday we rolled up our sleeves, put on our face masks, and picked up shovels to beautify Downtown. RPAL youth ambassadors and Groundwork Richmond’s green team led the way: identifying the planters and tree wells around CoBiz Richmond as prime locations for removing blight and adding greenery that will both beautify this corner of Downtown and provide cleaner air, shade, and a happier urban ecosystem for years to come. Check out this neat Richmond Standard video story.
