About Us The Community Greening Project is a collaboration between departments at Virginia Commonwealth University, the City of Richmond, Armstrong High School as well as several neighborhood associations with a goal of reducing the overall environmental impact of stormwater on the James River and improving our community health. The project was made possible with funding from the EPA's Urban Waters Small Grants Program. Throughout the project we will be attending meetings with neighborhood associations in our study area to gather feedback from community members in person and on line. We will use this feedback to develop community greening plan with recommendations for community greening projects. Final recommendations will also identify potential funding sources for community greening projects as well as other community organizations that can help implement them. Stay tuned for project updates.
