Come visit the Central Library for a first-hand look at what it takes to create an urban vegetable garden.
Inspired by the Arlington Reads 2010 theme of food sustainability, the Library is partnering with a variety of community organizations and agencies to put in a vegetable garden at its back entrance to benefit Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Check out AFAC’s Plot Against Hunger site to find more information about their program.
In addition to AFAC, our garden partners include:
- Girl Scout Troop 1431
- Potomac Overlook Regional Park of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority
- Potomac Vegetable Farms
- USDA People’s Garden Initiative
If you would like to volunteer to help maintain the garden, please contact Puwen Lee at email@example.com or call 703-845-8486.
Both AFAC and the Library will post photos of the garden’s progress through spring, summer and fall, so check back regularly!
