Community Gardens

Community Gardens is an urban agriculture program available at multiple DPR locations within the district. These lots, that are maintained thanks to a dual effort by DPR staff and D.C. citizens, are key in the fight against food & fesh produce deserts. They also serve as a great outdoor space for productive recreation for anyone with a green thumb.

Use the interactive map below to find a community garden in your area that you can get involved in.
