Have a yard and want to grow your own fresh fruit?
Richmond and the nonprofit group Self Sustaining Communities are holding another giveaway of fruit trees and seeds starting at noon Friday at the Civic Center Farmer’s Market behind the Richmond Auditorium.
City staff members will join Tom Burchell of Burchell Nursery, which donated the 1,000 trees being distributed, to hand out trees and seeds and answer questions. The first-come, first-serve event will also have free home compost pails and reusable bags available.
“The giveaway is open to all members of the community.”
