Partner Urban Farms

Common Good City Farm

DPR currently has several partner urban farms. A partner urban farm is an urban agriculture site that is located on DPR property but is managed and programed by a DPR partner. These partners are all 501c3 organizations that focus on offering gardening and nutrition programs while increasing access to healthy and affordable food to DC communities.

These sites are designed to be more production style farms than community gardens with personal plots, but are great places to volunteer to learn more about urban agriculture.

If you’re interested in volunteering or want to inquire about programs please review the list below.
