The Columbia Heights Green is one of many parks and gardens run through the Community Harvest Program at Washington Parks & People. Over 50 gardens and greening sites across Washington, DC are supported by Washington Parks & People. Their goal is to develop the Washington city region as a hub of urban agriculture, where, together with our neighbors, we are equipped with the tools and know-how to feed ourselves and break our reliance on distant agribusiness.
The Columbia Heights Green is a new model of urban agriculture. There are no individual beds! Anyone can join. Everyone can garden. Everyone can eat fresh, local food. The Green is 100% organic. Our new hoop-house allows us to grow veggies year-round. We support community activities, movie nights, potlucks, and live music.
