Urban agriculture in Washington DC

The Washington Post just added another video to their series on Community agriculture in the DC area. this third video showcases the advances of the Glover Park Community Garden in Northwest Washington.

My plot in another DC community garden does not look as nice as this one. We have a lot of empty plots, a illegal dumping , and a construction equipment for a nearby construction.

Yet, Blair Community Garden keeps being a sanctuary for many of us who seek a refuge from the noise and pollution of the city. According to one of my garden neighbors, the garden started decades ago as a Victory Garden. I just hope that the growing interest for urban agriculture my ensure the survival of it for another couple of decades.

Thanks to the Washington Post and the folks at City Garden News for spreading the news
