Join us for an afternoon
of gardening as we partner with DC Greens at this urban farm in the
heart of DC that serves the kids, families, and neighbors of the Walker
Jones Education Campus, a DC Public School. While the farm serves the
greater community in which it resides, it serves as an outdoor
classroom, allowing educators to extend student thinking before, during,
and after their hands-on work on the farm, while reminding children
that the foods we eat are as important as the books we read. We will be
prepping and planting for the summer crops, so come in your best
“farming” attire for lots of soil turning, weed churning, crop planting
and more, followed by our own on the farm “happy hoeing hour”
