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, 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 April to October each season. Open volunteer hours are Thursday evenings from 5:00pm-7:00pm and volunteers are welcome to drop-in at anytime during that timeframe. Sign up for a shift here!
No previous experience is necessary, but volunteers should be prepared to spend extended periods of time outdoors and tasks may include bending and lifting 10-25 lbs at a time.
Group Experiences on the Farm
We offer groups a fee-based educational team building program on the K Street Farm during weekday hours. This dynamic group experience provides participants with hands-on urban farm work, group team building, and a deeper understanding of food justice in DC.
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 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.
