Join us for an afternoon of gardening, as we partner with DC Greens at this urban farm in the heart of the District. Childhood obesity rates are well above the national average in DC, with 1 in 8 District residents struggling to afford fresh fruit or vegetables. DC Greens is bridging the gaps in our local food system to ensure that all residents of the District have a deeper connection to the sources of their food and can afford fresh, local fruit and vegetables. Tools will be provided and free parking is available at the lot adjacent to the the Farm on K Street, NW between New Jersey and First Street NW. Come support this community endeavor to help end childhood obesity in DC and enjoy some fresh, local veggies!
