Tricycle Urban Ag Culture is Richmond’s leading urban agriculture nonprofit organization, and we are on a mission to grow a healthy future through urban agriculture. Since breaking ground on our first garden, we have engaged thousands of neighbors and shown that the simple act of growing food is an incredibly powerful way to impact the overall health of the environment and our community. This work addresses a myriad of challenging issues, and ultimately our mission is about FOOD:
F: FOCUS ON COMMUNITY NEEDS
O: OUTREACH & EDUCATION
O: OPPORTUNITIES FOR HEALTHY FOOD ACCESS
D: DESIGN OF BEAUTIFUL SPACES
