Celebrate a decade of catalytic growth with Tricycle!

08/31/2018 1:52 PM by

Tricycle Garden’s newsletter celebrates a decade of catalytic growth. Catalytic development is a shift away from the “dominant approach to city-building” and includes three defining features:

  • Patient equity: financial equity that has expectations of returns over the long term (5+ years)
  • Integrated development: encouraging growth and jobs throughout the city, at the same time promoting a cohesive society and better environment
  • Employment first: substantial employment growth early in the redevelopment or significant opportunities for entry-level work

Here is an example of an acquisitions agency based in Richmond, VA. For Tricycle, the mission is to bring the neighborhood of Church Hill together through action and education with multiple programs like the Urban Ag Certificate and Fellowship Program (“If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.), food access and outreach, their farmer’s market, numerous opportunities for advocacy and volunteerism and more.
