We’ll Be At The DC State Fair!
The DC State Fair is a free showcase of the District’s agricultural and creative talents and a daylong (11am-8pm) celebration of all things homegrown. This year, the Fair will be in our backyard, at 375 and 425 M Street SW. For the first time, we’ll have a table there to show off our garden goods. We’ll be tabling from 11am-5pm, and will have our final hour in the garden, from 5-6pm.
The Fair comes right around the time we’ll be harvesting our peanuts, so we’ll showcasing, Farmer Coy’s favorite comfort food snack, boiled peanuts! Do you have additional suggestions for items we can display? Food, flowers, art? We’re all eyes and ears and can get the necessary materials, just let us know. If you’d also like to volunteer to sit at the table for a little bit, that’d be great as well.
Continuing Carrot Harvests
Although we planned on harvesting all our carrots yesterday, we chose instead, to harvest them as volunteers want them. Carrots of the orange and purple variety will be available all this week, so come and get them!
Last Thursday, we took over the Instagram page of the Southwest Business Improvement District (@SW BID). Thank you to everyone who let us photograph or interview them — I think we gave the Instagram world a good glimpse into our garden activities. if you haven’t already, head over to their Instagram page and check out the posts. You can also check out all the interviews in one YouTube video here.
