The 11th Street Bridge Park and the University of the Disctrict of Columbia are partnering to establish urban gardens in Ward 8 to combat health related disparities, due to Ward 8 being a food desert. The National Children’s Center is a new site and on Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 8:00 am- 2:00 pm, we will be planting vegetable seedlngs and would love for volunteers to come by and help in any way you can! There will be light refreshments and water will be provided! This is event is perfect for all ages, especially families. It is also a great way to get involved in making a difference in a part of the Washington, D.C. that has been neglected for years. Hope to see you there!
