Funded by the Real Estate Foundation and the City of Richmond, RFSS has identified over 638 properties that could be used for a variety of food activities.

This important report has been finalized and is now available to the public.  Read about how Richmond could do so much more to promote food security and urban agriculture on our precious local foodland.
