Bed Repair & Prep Workshop

March 23 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0

“Getting our farms in shape while getting our volunteers physically fit!”

 

NCC’s Urban Farm and Fruit Orchard located in Southeast Washington, DC is a great place for community engagement and partnerships.  Through the farm, NCC provides healthy food options in the Ward 8 community. 

The Farm Fit Program helps with the maintenance and upkeep needed for the site.  The continuous farming includes turning over beds, plantings and other farming activities.  Volunteers experience a great workout while helping to maintain the land.  NCC welcomes community partners to volunteer.

In collaboration with Capital Area Food Bank the workshop will instruct community gardeners on maintenance techniques for common raised-bed issues such as bed warping/splitting, poor drainage, rotting, and poor soil quality.
