This week, the Kennedy Earth Team interns participated in the Martin Luther King Day of Service organized by Friends of the Richmond Greenway. Several organizations hosted volunteer projects along the Greenway including The Watershed Project (TWP). The Kennedy students helped TWP in the never-ending battle against Bermuda grass and other weeds.

This MLK day of service also celebrated the grand opening of Unity Park, a public space spanning several blocks of the Richmond Greenway. Unity Park is a result of significant community collaboration and effort to create safe public spaces.

The Richmond Greenway is a path and open space constructed on an unused railroad track spanning through Richmond at the base of the Iron Triangle. It is a great place for walking, biking, playing, and enjoying being outdoors. The students enjoyed contributing to its continued development!
