A late welcome to our spring season!

It’s been a pretty darn busy spring so far – we’ve had lots to plant, dig and do at NFI.

Right now, we’re rushing to meet our May 15 tilling deadline: according to community garden rules, all our beds must be tilled by next Saturday. We’re hacking down last year’s vetch and digging right in – we could really use your hands! 

Special thanks go out to fantastic regular volunteers like Neil, Russell, Caroline, and Teshome, who have been planting, weeding and amending the soil at our half-acre farm. 

We’ve also got seedling sales each Saturday in May at Community Forklift. Get your tomatoes, peppers and basil from us. Find out what varieties are available here.

And the Gardening Education Program! Our season-long, hands-on gardening course starts tomorrow. Check back for updates!

We’ve also had awesome groups from Weatherize DC, the Latin American Youth Center, McFarland Middle School, KPMG, and most recently, the USDA!

Come out and join us soon! Email neighborhoodfarm@gmail.com to get on our mailing list!
