We empower youth to build healthy, equitable, and sustainable communities.
To achieve this goal, we work with young people to develop farms, gardens, and other greenspaces to promote food and environmental justice while building skills to nurture tomorrow's advocates.
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.

Today, we are expanding the farm, and your support will help unlock its full potential – allowing us to expand our youth engagement and grow even more food for the community. Your support will allow us to fund land acquisition, build capacity, and strengthen our infrastructure so that we can exponentially grow our programs and impact.

Everyone should be able to live in healthy, vibrant communities
Yet inequities in our food system and environmental policies harm our most vulnerable communities the most
We empower youth to advance food and environmental justice while building skills that will amplify their voices, involvement, and impact around these issues
We work with elementary school, high school, and college students develop and maintain farms and greenspaces, in addition to delivering other hands-on experiences in agriculture and environmental sustainability.
Farm and School Gardens
We manage a 1.5-acre farm and several school gardens that are the heart of our youth engagement and community programs. These greenspaces are developed and maintained by the young people we work with, providing valuable hands-on experience. The food we grow goes back to the community, providing fresh, nutritious food to the areas that need it most. .
Our Farms and School Gardens
We’ve worked with students at a number of schools to develop and maintain a variety of farms and gardens. Take a look at some of our work below!
