2017. Removing barriers. Creating Opportunities.

This year, we honored our commitment to growing food and cultivating community by taking key steps to remove barriers and create opportunities, all in support of strengthening our community and furthering our mission. Below are highlights of two initiatives we are extra proud of.

Donations Matched & a Chance for Gym Membership for all First-time Donors!

We are committed to growing our community of donors by offering two great incentives for first-time donors. Between now and the end of the year, our Board of Directors will match all donations from first-time donors! 

Season Wrap Up Party and Falloween

Celebrate the end of a successful season with us on Saturday, October 28 from 10am-1pm! In conjunction with the Friends of the Park at LeDroit's Falloween, we will host our season closing party on the farm. Come by for a fun and family friendly day of pumpkin painting, farm tours, food, and more.

It's been a wonderful season of growing food and cultivating community and we can't wait to celebrate with you!

Farmer Mac: Walking the Talk in DC

When he’s with his colleagues Chris Bohanon of Farmer Mac can tell them about the last time he volunteered.

They aren’t surprised, though. That’s nothing new, as taking time out of work to volunteer is part of the Farmer Mac ethos.

He can tell them he volunteered at a farm. That isn’t surprising either, given Farmer Mac’s mission relates to providing financial support to both American agriculture and rural communities.

Meet Terri

As a seventeen year old, entering her senior year of high school in 2015, Terri joined our Summer Youth Program , unsure of what to expect and wary of working in such a new environment. She was unsure and struggled to speak up in unfamiliar settings. But she kept an open mind and embraced the opportunity to enhance her public speaking skills, learn about sustainable agriculture and healthy eating, and utilize the job training resources.
