The Well at Oxon Run

When Community Dreams Together

Nestled in Oxon Run Park in Ward 8, The Well at Oxon Run is DC Greens’ one-acre community farm and wellness space. The site promotes healing in green spaces by hosting on-site programming that aims to improve food access and wellness in the local community. 

Complete with 20,000 square feet of farming space dedicated to seasonal crop production, large community convening spaces, and an outdoor classroom, The Well at Oxon Run welcomes all community members to work in the soil, celebrate, and share experiences together. 

The Well at Oxon Run is always free and open to the public. Our 2024 season runs March 19–October 31.  

Free street parking is available but limited. Visitors are encouraged to carpool.  

Operating Hours:
Tuesday–Friday: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.  Saturday: 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.  Closed: Sunday and Monday

Harvest Your Own Produce

In 2023, The Well at Oxon Run harvested more than 4,000lbs of fresh produce for the local community. Once plantings are ready to harvest (usually in May or June), community members are invited to walk up and pluck their own produce any time we’re open — for free! DC Greens staff are happy to assist you. Then we’ll weigh it, bag it, and you’ll be on your way with fruits and vegetables grown right in Congress Heights.
