urban agriculture

Nothing defines fresh and local like growing food in your own backyard – or on your own roof for that matter! Urban agriculture is critical to improving our food security and safety. It also reduces our carbon footprint and improves our nutritious food balance.



DC Greenworks helps implement innovative urban agriculture projects through rooftop vegetable gardens, schoolyard edible efforts, community gardening projects, and numerous other avenues.  Providing fresh produce to urban consumers not only improves the health of folks living in our city, but also builds community and straightens our sustainability.
