DC Urban Gardeners, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, has recently announced its arrival on the scene and they're here to promote earth-friendly gardening practices, environmental stewardship and volunteerism. Its founding members are all graduates of UDC's Master Gardener program but membership is open to all who share their mission.
Activities and Events
Already in its first few months, the DC Urban Gardeners have created a Speakers Bureau and a consulting team helping to create new School Gardens, and are busy creating and hosting free websites for all DC commmunity gardens. For fun, they host Plant Exchanges. More projects coming soon - they welcome your ideas.
