Seeds of Change wins Green Grant for Litter Prevention

The Seeds of Change Organization in Richmond has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $500 for its Litter Prevention project.

The Seeds of Change Organization is dedicated to supporting urban communities through agricultural practices. Currently, Seeds of Change is working on a Biggs Road Community Garden, located in Richmond’s 8th District. The organization will use their grant to reduce the amount of litter found in this area by installing pet waste stations, trash cans, and recycling bins. Neighbors, visitors, and dog-walkers will be able to keep the green space clean and beautiful.

Since 2011, we have provided $203,000 for 260 different environmental projects and programs all across the Commonwealth, due to the generosity this year of our partner Altria, as well as additional support from Keep America Beautiful and Coca-Cola.
