Update 4/22: This event has been postponed to Sunday, April 23rd at 3-5 PM due to the weather. All other details of the event remain the same.
There aren’t many better ways to spend Earth Day than getting your hands in the soil and learning about gardening at a community farming project. Join Everybody Grows and DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services on Saturday April 22nd from 3:00-5:00 PM for an open volunteer session at the fire station farm at Engine 26 at 1340 Rhode Island Avenue Northeast DC (don’t forget the northeast part!). This is an all ages event and everybody is welcome!
The main tasks of the day will all be soil related. We will be adding garden soil to our new raised beds we constructed with Sidwell Friends Middle School students. We will also be amending the older beds with compost and worm castings. All soil is locally sourced from Veteran Compost.
While we will be providing a limited number of tools, we encourage you to bring your favorite bucket and shovel, especially if you are bringing young children. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty! For any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
See you in the garden!
