OurFarm DC is a nonprofit that helps schools and community organizations, especially in food-insecure areas, across the DC metropolitan region access their own source of produce in the form of high-yield and high-tech hydroponic farms.
We have partnered with the Covenant House of Greater Washington DC, along with Run Hope Work, to provide a container farm and workforce development programming for the homeless youth and young adults they serve.
Our farms and programming are a unique and productive way to engage and feed your community. We invite your students/stakeholders in for hands-on experiences in the farm, while our farmers maintain and ensure it's running at it's optimal output. Our education and workforce development programming is unique in that it can be tailored to your specific population and features modules on sustainable entrepreneurship.Get In Touch
