a green roof?
dc greenworks launched a project on the grounds of the Dunbar Apartments in the U Street Corridor, creating a community garden. The garden creates a welcoming space for residents and the community to meet and will give the Dunbar residents access to fresh herbs and vegetables.
This garden is all about local food and bringing community together to strengthen a historic area of DC that is rapidly changing and still experiences a high level of violence and unemployment. It provides a place for kids, seniors and other community members to meet and form stronger relationships.
The community garden contains 15 raised planted beds, built at a variety of heights to accomadate the residents of Dunbar apartments.
