Controversy/History: Is the Grass Greener? Access to the City’s Green Spaces

December 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In 2037, how would you like Richmond to look, work and feel? The Valentine’s Controversy/History series is partnering with Richmond 300, the city’s master planning process, to explore big questions about the kind of city we hope to become.

On Tuesday, December 3, we’ll take a look at who actually has access to the city’s green spaces. Richmond’s history of segregating supposedly “public” spaces, what access to these spaces looks like today and what you can do as advocates to improve access in the future.

We’ll hear from Dr. Jeremy Hoffman, Chief Scientist at the Science Museum of Virginia, Duron L Chavis, Manager of Community Engagement at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Chris Frelke, Director of Richmond VA Parks and Recreation.

The series is designed to foster reflection on where were, where we are and where we hope to be as a city. This event is co-hosted by Coffee With Strangers RVA host Kelli S. Lemon.
