Agriculture and Urban Gardening

Agriculture - In partnership with CAUSES, University of the District of Columbia (UDC), we facilitate education for youth and adults.  We are currently looking to assist with the development of a training facility in Aquaponics production that integrates vegetable and fish productions.  A critical part of this sector is partnering with UDC in developing an Aquaponics Training Center at the Muirkirk Research Farm. This program is designed to make strong contributions to UDC’s food-related entrepreneurship and the farmer’s market initiatives.

Urban Gardening - This sector provides demonstration areas and training for urban and rural dwellers to learn to develop, maintain and/or enhance horticulture projects via Vertical Gardens; Green House Production; Balconies; and Streetscapes.   Urban landscapes reflect culture, enjoyment, and sustainability for urban and rural dwellers.

Some residents may desire growth of healthy foods and the beautification of ornamental gardening yet lack space, knowledge and skills.  In an effort to attract and teach local residences urban gardening and sustainable techniques, we are seeking to assist with the development of local vertical garden training sites.  Through these sites, local residents will also be introduced to sustainable techniques for greenhouse production, pot planting, and flatbed gardening.
