Lille Mae Jones was a pioneer in Richmond, achieving many meaningful and environmentally progressive benefits for the community. Her granddaughter, Lena Henderson, with the support and encouragement of Lillie Mae and through their organization, C.Y.C.L.E, have created an urban farm in the heart of the Iron Triangle of Richmond, CA. We have been proud and happy to participate with Lena through the provision of some materials and small farm animals. We are working together to put in a rainwater harvesting system, an aquaponics set-up, rabbits, chickens and beehives. It is a meaningful collaboration with many people working together.
She has also served as a distribution point for some fruit, nut and olive trees to go out freely into the surrounding community.
