CANVAS & community

We’re part of a neighborhood with deep roots and some challenges as it economically transforms. As Canvas is part of the evolution of the southside of Richmond, we’re investing in protecting the history and culture of the neighborhood while passionately supporting making the South of the James (SoTJ) neighborhoods among the most sustainable on the east coast. With every rental we give back to the community that supports us. 5% of your rental fee will be donated to the  Friends of The James River Park System to continue making the river and park system a source of environmental health and outdoor activity. Another 5% will be donated to McDonough Community Garden right down the street that to help in their mission to promote urban agriculture and employment, horticultural therapy and environmental stewardship. Many of our crafted itineraries include use of the park system or partnership with the community garden.
