Please join us Saturday, March 9th for a day of service with our friends at DC Urban Greens.
We are going to help make tables, prep the beds for planting and prepare the crops for the incoming rain and snow season.
The compost bin needs fixing and we might make some new homes for the hard working red wiggler worms. If we finish early there is plenty of general maintenance around the grounds that can get done too.
The farm contributes more than 3000 lbs of food to the local community, and as the garden is located in a part of Ward 8 with little to no access to fresh foods, it's absolutely essential to the overall health of the neighborhood.
Bring your water proof clothes and prepare to get dirty!
What To Wear :
It might be muddy! Wear boots.
Plenty of parking on the street is available

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
