Dr. Obiudu And The Richmond Community Garden

Dr. Chuma Obiudu is helping a community discover the power of community gardens.

Without the benefit of Obiudu's imaginings, the Richmond Community Garden seems not only the antithesis of wilderness but a picture of blight...his unprepossessing piece of ground has become the psychic center of Richmond's redevelopment plans. It's the energy around the garden that is driving the Richmond of the present into a very different future.
