James River Nurseries is proud to sponsor this year's M4K Richmond event!  As an engaged member of the Richmond community, we feel it's important to give back where we can, and sponsoring organizations that help others is one way to accomplish that objective.

Here's a brief description about M4K Richmond:

"M4K Richmond, Inc. is a volunteer-run organization that was founded in 2003 with the goal of raising money for local children's charities while having fun growing mustaches.  Inspired by the National Mustaches for Kids chapters in California and NYC, two Richmond-area philanthropic geniuses took a leap of faith and grew their first mustache.  After being spiritually and piously enlightened by the magic of 1) having a mustache and 2) helping children's charities; the pair began their annual campaign to relentlessly recruit Growers and brand the M4K Richmond orgainization.  In the beginning there was a small group of less than 10 Growers with limited mustache growing potential.  Membership has grown each year with over 200 Growers sporting sweet mustaches during this past growing season.  In 2010 M4K Richmond was incorporated and received recognition as an official 501(c)3 non-profit public charity by the IRS.  Through the years, M4K has enlisted the efforts of thousands of brave Growers who collectively have raised over $1,800,000 for Richmond based children's charities such as The Children's Hospital Foundation, Greater Richmond SCAN, The ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation, Feedmore, and more."

Here at JRN, we feel fortunate to be in a position to sponsor this worthy cause.  If you would like more information about how you too could play a role in helping so many Richmond based children's charities, please go to:  M4K Richmond

James River Nurseries was proud to be selected landscape and hardscape contractor for University of Richmond's Queally Athletic Center.  Connected to the repurposed Millhiser Gym, this new complex will double as the new backetball practice facility for the Spiders as well as a student well-being center.

The buliding, named for 1986 alumni Paul and Anne-Marie Queally, who donated the lead gift (7.5 million) to launch the fundraising efforts for the new facility, will include a training room, strength and conditioning areas, full-size practice gym, coaches' offices, academic support area, team locker rooms and a Spider Heritage Hall that celebrates the tradition of UR athletics.

At James River Nurseries, we consider it both an honor and a privilege to be invited to work on so many great projects at the University of Richmond, and working on the Queally Athletic Center was another reminder of just how special the campus is.  With the Gothic architecture and manicured grounds, it's no wonder UR consistently ranks among the most beautiful college campuses in America (#1 in this year's Princeton Review).
