Fort Totten Urban Organic Garden

Growing food and community in our city!

NFI's Fort Totten garden is at the very heart of our work. It's where people come together to teach, learn, work, play, laugh, share...and to grow fresh, healthy, delicious food for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Directions to the Garden

Our garden is accessible via public transportation, conveniently located a short walk from the Fort Totten metro rail station (Green, Yellow, and Red lines).

For information on Metro routes, schedules, and fares, visit

Walking directions from the Fort Totten station:

After exiting the station, turn left (north) and walk up the sidewalk past where the buses stop.  Across from the parking lot you’ll see a paved footpath going up over a slight, grassy hill. Follow that path across until  you  see our garden fence come into view at the top of the hill!

Closest address for driving and/or online mapping:

Donated Food

Each year NFI donates hundreds of pounds of fresh vegetables that are grown by volunteers in our community plots. This hyper-local produce provides supplemental harvest for our SNAP scholarship families; for selected sponsored families in the Fort Totten Community; and for the ladies in the Takoma Victory Tower Senior community, who just love juicing!  They get so excited when we can bring fresh greens from the garden.
