DPR Community Gardens - Gardeners for Spring 2014

The warm temperatures this weekend had me thinking about Spring and Gardening!

Last year, we participated in Howard University Hospital “My Garden Project.”  My daughters loved caring for their garden and particularly enjoyed eating the fruits of their labor.  View photos here.

This Spring, DPR is opening 10 new public community gardens across the District.  Each garden will be a mixture of personal plots and shared public plots for DPR’s garden education program.  If you are interested in gardening in the above locations, contact Josh Singer, DPR’s Community Garden Specialist, at joshua.singer@dc.gov or (202) 262-2138. Want to obtain a plot at another DPR community garden, check here for locations and availability.

Also, consider participating in these DPR Environmental Programs:

dpr_WGIMH2013

WGIMH: The Field Guide Project (formerly What’s Good in My Hood)
Dates: January 20 – March 28, 2014
Weekly Offering: One hour sessions, twice per week
Ages: 6 – 13 years
Environmental After School Program
WGIMH: The Field Guide Project is an after school program designed to connect youth with nature through neighborhood exploration.  Youth will learn how to observe and identify living things around them, while creating a field guide specific to their community-at-large.  View listing of participating sites here.

Plot 2 Plate: Intergenerational Gardening and Cooking Program
Dates: Spring through Fall seasons
Plot 2 Plate (formerly Gardeners Groove) is a three season small-scale gardening program based at a variety of recreation centers. During the spring season, participants will learn the basics of gardening and ‘seed to plate’ concepts while maintaining communal vegetable garden beds. During the summer and fall seasons, garden maintenance will continue and gardeners will expand their learning by harvesting and cooking healthy recipes with their newly grown vegetables.
