Volunteers and community members celebrated Earth Day with the dedication on April 21 of the Fred Jackson Harmony Garden on Fred Jackson Way in North Richmond.
Adult and children volunteers also participated in a day of service, helping to clean up and improve the environment. Some volunteers worked on community gardens, while others picked up litter at target locations.
The North Richmond Earth Day event was organized by a combination of resident groups and local non-profit organizations, businesses and agencies that are working to make a difference in the environment and the health of the North Richmond community.
