We truly can’t believe we’re at the end of our 2023 season at The Well at Oxon Run. We have grown immensely this past year with new team members, five new partners, senior programming with Kingdom Care — the list goes on. And we hope to bring these pieces back in our 2024 season.  

Our farm team, Kenneth and Wes, grew nearly two tons of produce this year! And we distribute the fresh produce to the community in a variety of ways across the season. Guests visiting The Well harvested pounds of tomatoes, bunched basil bouquets after a yoga class with Jalila, and snapped up jalapeños at our Farmers Market stand. Thanks to our farmers, our community has been able to easily access a farm-to-table experience all season long. 

Of course, we couldn’t do all this without help from amazing volunteers. Just a few weeks ago, we completed the last harvest of sweet potatoes, and high school students and teachers from Maret volunteered with us to help us close out the growing season. This group of friends harvested 160lbs of red, white, and purple sweet potatoes! These sweet potatoes were not the easiest tasks we had planned for them, but they happily got their hands dirty and harvested every last one! 

We’re also grateful to our amazing programming partners this year. DC Greens has always envisioned The Well at Oxon Run as a community-led space. In 2023, our partners helped us bring in new programming at The Well, like Jazz in The Garden, Go-Go in The Garden, and First Friday Dinners on The Farm. Working in collaboration The Well and our partners served more than 2,500 community members.  

Thank you, FRESHFARM, Connected to Culture, Congress Height Community Training & Development Corporation, & Congress Heights Arts & Cultural Center for an incredible year. We look forward to continued partnership in 2024. 

And thank you, our wonderful supporters, for an amazing season at The Well at Oxon Run!
