Greening Southside Richmond

In formerly redlined neighborhoods, how can trees bring peace, provide health benefits, and reduce pollution? In Southside Richmond, community groups and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation are planting more than 650 new trees at sites suffering from extreme heat linked to racially-motivated housing discrimination that occurred decades ago.

Southside ReLeaf, Friends of Swansboro Park, and CBF share more about these combined efforts in this short video. The Greening Southside Richmond project is supported by a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant.
