At DC UrbanGreens our mission is to feed bodies and nourish minds by increasing accessibility of affordable healthy foods to residents of food desert neighborhoods. We employ innovative and scalable methods, techniques and business models to implement small-scale urban agriculture in a fiscally and environmentally sustainable way.
By reducing reliance on industrial food sources, we lessen household food insecurity,strengthen community self-reliance and increase our children’s ability to grow and learn.
Operating as a non-profit organization east of the Anacostia River in DC's Ward 7, we strive to produce chemical-free fruits and vegetables on underutilitized urban land. Our food is grown right in the neighborhoods that need it most - low income areas lacking easy access to grocery stores.
