Community Garden Census
Plotting out growing opportunities in DC
Starting a Community Garden
In 2010, NFI, together with DC Field to Fork compiled a guide on starting a community garden, with tips on land, getting started, and funding. While some of this material may be outdated, the starting points can be very helpful.
Community Garden Map
In 2010, NFI compiled information about all of the community gardens in DC. To see the Google map of this project please visit the Community Garden Census Map. The information was last updated in 2013, but if you know of a community garden that is not listed on this map, please email: email@example.com with details about the garden.

Please be reminded that we do not run any of these community gardens. The information was complied solely to be beneficial to the DC community.
Marchella Kriebel, local DC Artist also turned the community garden map into a beautiful poster you can display at home! Check out the poster on her etsy page.
