On Jan. 16 we honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a volunteer event at the Dirt World site. The day of service featured appearances by Richmond Mayor Tom Butt, many city council members, and 350 volunteers who helped plant trees, weed, mulch, and generally prep the site for construction. Huge thanks to Friends of the Richmond Greenway, Groundwork Richmond, the Watershed Project and all the many other orgs that helped make it all happen. Dirt World isn't just about having fun on bikes -- it's about revitalizing our city and fostering community in divisive times.
The event was covered by the East Bay Times and KGO-TV.
