Church Hill Irish Festival
Sat Mar 26 11:00 am
The 2011 Church Hill Irish Festival is this weekend (March 26 and 27th) /tag/irish-festival/
Church Hill Orchard planting
Sat Mar 26 9:00 am
Join us Saturday, March 26th from 9am-1pm to help plant Tricycle Gardens’ first urban orchard. We’re gathering at an empty lot located at 1626 North 27th Street to plant pears, cherries, pawpaws, plums and more.
Why are we doing this? Because fruit and nut trees used to be a greater part of the urban landscape. There are still surviving trees and bushes in Richmond. Now, unfortunately, trees with prominent fruits (black walnuts, apples, pears) are now viewed by many people as a nuisance. We want to return people to an awareness of fruit and nut trees and their value and importance in our local food web and re-create an acceptance of them in urban areas. And as with so many of our projects, we want to do this in a very visible way.
Like our neighborhoods (and our neighbors) these trees take care of us as we take care of them.

!Who: Promisses (non-profit organization) + The Honorable Cynthia Newbillie + Delegate Delores Mcquinn
Where: Family Resource Center | 2405 Jefferson Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23223
How: Volunteers will register each high school girl with a school i.d., assign her a \’styling assistant\’, and help choose a dress of her dreams for prom night. (Dresses are FREE OF CHARGE)
Why: Promisses believes every girl deserves to feel special on her prom night; therefore, we collect new and gently used dresses for ladies who cannot afford to attend their high school prom. With tons of styles in our inventory, our board members, volunteers, & community leaders strive to make the Promisses\’ Shopping Day a memorable one for each teen girl.
Our prominent community leaders will be available for media interviews at their discretion. For media inquiries or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Davia Archer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
