Richmond Volunteers Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday


Nearly 500 volunteers worked on community gardens Monday, beautifying Richmond Greenway at the 6th Annual Martin Luther King National Day of Service, a project of Urban Tilth.
The event was in partnership with Friends of the Richmond Greenway, City of Richmond and over 20 organizations including East Bay Center for Performing Arts, which performed during the community event.
Other activities included work on a community mural, which stretches from Harbour Way to 8th Street, health and wellness projects, a petting zoo, garbage pickup, and planting edible gardens. Among the funders were Kaiser Permanente, City of Richmond, HandsOn Bay Area and Marin Clean Energy. Photo by Gabino Arredondo.
