Urban Demonstration Garden

Organization: Capital Area Food Bank

Fresh produce is a staple of a healthy diets. In our on site urban garden, community members can learn how to grow fresh fruits and vegetables, even with limited space.

Sharing the joy of gardening
You don’t have to live outside the city to grow a garden. Our half-acre Urban Demonstration Garden offers an outdoor “learning laboratory” where community members can learn how to grow good, nutritious food with just a small piece of land, or even a container on a windowsill. From planting to nurturing to harvesting, our garden allows others – including our food assistance partners, volunteers, donors, and staff – to experience the joy of growing delicious food while gaining a new appreciation for produce and the important role it plays in our health. Gardening not only offers a chance to connect with the soil no matter where you live; it empowers people to grow the healthy food they need to thrive.

Work in our garden
We would love to show you our urban garden and tell you all about the produce we grow and our mission created hunger solutions for the Washington, DC, region. You can even help us with the planting, harvesting, and daily care of our many fruits and vegetables. Groups of coworkers, friends, and/or family are welcome!
