The K Street Farm
The K Street Farm is a ¾ acre farm located adjacent to the Walker Jones Education Campus (see map for location). The Farm is home to 5,000 square feet of growing space, two honey bee hives, four egg-laying chickens, a variety of fruits trees, and many perennial herbs and flowers. In addition to the programs listed below, the K Street Farm is also a professional development training site for our network of school garden coordinators from all eight wards of the city.
Volunteer on the Farm
The K Street Farm hosts weekly open volunteer hours on the farm from March to October each season. Information 2017 open hours will be available in late February, early March.
School Garden Markets
Move over bake sale! School Garden Markets are student-run, single vendor markets stocked with produce from their school gardens. Produce grown at the K Street Farm by our Farmer Trainees helps supplement these 10 weekly Markets’ offerings. Students learn the in’s and out’s of sales while supplying their community with fresh, healthy produce. Find a market near you!
We offer a fee-based educational team building program on the K Street Farm. This dynamic group experience provides participants with hands-on urban farm work, group team building, and a deeper understanding of food justice in DC.
