Brookland Backyard Demonstration Garden - Found Peace Garden

Last Date:

909 Lawerence Street, NE, Washington, DC 20017

This field-trip is intended to inspire ideas for your backyard garden. The garden, called FoundPeace Urban Farm is a collaborative project between neighbors and family where over 80 varieties of annual and perennial plants are being intensively grown for personal consumption in a 2000 square foot plot.  "Found Peace" is an amazing example of how to build various types of built garden beds, various trellises, various cold frames, mushroom inoculation, storm water cistern capturing, home seedling production, fruit trees, composting and other garden systems for a backyard.  If you plan on building a garden in your yard, "Found Peace" is a great example of what you can do, how to do it, and source of motivation to do it.
