Do you want to help us help the project grow? There are a few ways to do this – buy our produce, trade some volunteer time on the farm for our yummy edibles or make a direct contribution.
We are growing a huge variety of vegetables and fruits, some of which are tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, swiss chard, turnips, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, watermelon, canteloupe, green beans, lima beans, pole beans, lettuces, carrots, beets, basil and other herbs, zinnias and sunflowers. In the fall we will have pumpkins, winter squash, sweet potatoes, fingerling and russet potatoes, spinach, a few varieties of kale and collards.
During the summer, the farm will serve the community by providing fresh produce on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays in two ways:
Sundays from 12-4pm the farm is open to the public for community volunteer days. Anyone is welcome to lend a hand with various farm tasks and in exchange, you will be given a selection of the day’s produce. Bring your own bag!
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm-6pm and Sundays from 2pm-4pm our farm stand will be open, beginning July 3rd. We will be selling freshly harvested produce and cut flowers at extremely low prices. All profits support the school farm.
Would you rather make a monetary contribution? All checks may be made out to The Farm at Walker Jones, and mailed to: The Farm at Walker Jones; Attention: Frances Evangelista; 1125 New Jersey Avenue NW; Washington DC 20001. We will send a receipt with tax information.
If you’d like to visit the farm on another day, schedule a volunteer event, get on our email special events list, or just find out more about us, please contact David Hilmy, Farm Lead Teacher at firstname.lastname@example.org and Frances Evangelista, Farm Executive Director at email@example.com. The farm is located at the corner of New Jersey and K Streets, NW.
