We had a great time hosting students from the Saturday Environmental Academy last weekend!

SEA headed to THEARC Farm-- an urban farm in D.C.'s ward 8 last Saturday. We learned how it supports the Sustainable DC plan by growing healthy food for local residents, providing training for urban gardeners, and educating the community on nutrition and healthy living. Students had a great time harvesting (and tasting!) tomatoes, peppers, basil, fennel, carrots, etc. and doing other garden projects like composting and garden maintenance. What an awesome resource in our community-- check it out!
