As summer begins, downtown Richmond looks greener and more vibrant, thanks in part to the efforts of local schoolchildren.

Be Richmond (Richmonds Business Improvement District) has made significant efforts to add more colour and greenery to the area by providing flower boxes and hanging baskets.

This year, Be Richmond partnered with local schools and community groups, giving them the opportunity to actively participate in the planting efforts and contribute to the beautification of the city.

The Deer Park School Eco Council enthusiastically took up the challenge and brought the planters on Hill Rise to life with a stunning floral display.

Meanwhile, the North Richmond Scouts group showed exceptional dedication in ensuring that the planters outside the Odeon in Red Lion Street were ready for their close-up.

“We wanted to give the children of Richmond the opportunity to learn the importance of planting and sustainability,” explained Anna Bromley, Marketing Manager at Be Richmond.

“We also gave them their own wildflower seeds to plant at home, encouraging them to continue using their green thumbs.”

Richmond remains committed to improving the city’s environment, from greening initiatives to comprehensive street cleaning.

This collaboration with local schools and community groups not only beautifies Richmond, but also instills a sense of community pride and environmental responsibility in the younger generation.

Be Richmond is the Business Improvement District for downtown Richmond dedicated to promoting local business, supporting economic growth and improving the overall shopping experience.
