Earth Day of Service

  • Enrichmond Foundation 100 North 17th Street Richmond, VA, 23223 United States (map)

Get your hands dirty and make a difference in your community this Earth Day! Join the Enrichmond Foundation for an Earth Day of Service on Saturday, April 27th. For our 26th year, we’re calling for neighbors all over Richmond to volunteer in their communities in our biggest Day of Service yet!

Join friends and neighbors to help clear invasive plants, plant native trees, beautify public spaces, and so much more! Please register to volunteer on HandsOn Greater Richmond - link under "Find Tickets".

Volunteers will work from 9am – 12pm and should come prepared to work outside. Be sure to wear clothes that can get dirty, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, and a hat. Please bring gloves, water, and a snack to fuel your hard work. All work sites will involve physical activities, including lifting. If you are unable to stand for long period of time, please let us know in advance so we can arrange for extra seating.
