Vitis rotundifolia or better known as Muscadine Grapes is a native to the southeastern united states and was the first grape species to be cultivated in North America. These grapes have the toughest skin and are not always great for just eating but are perfect for winemaking.

If you want to learn to make your fruit wine check out our online winemaking class. Link in bio.

Baltimore Fish Pepper 🐟🌶

Originating in the Caribbean and brought to the U.S. in the 19th century. The pepper became a popular ingredient among the Black community and was commonly used in many seafood dishes (hence the name fish pepper).
They declined in popularity in the early 20th century but was saved in the 1940s thanks to Horace Pippin, a Black folk painter who gave fish pepper seeds to H. Ralph Weaver, a beekeeper, in exchange for honey bees 🐝

We have to share some sad news with you. H St farms will be permanently closing at the end of October. We’ve had such an amazing time growing on this rooftop but it’s time for us to say goodbye and move onto a new site.
Thank you everyone for supporting us throughout the last 5 years and particularly during COVID when retail sales became a crucial part of keeping this business afloat.
@cultivatethecity as a company is still going strong and we’re looking forward to our next adventure✨
We are selling many things during this move, including our lovely little greenhouses.
Stop by the rooftop to enjoy it while it’s here and let us know if you’re interested in purchasing any of the items that are up here.

Native perennials are important for sustaining and supporting our native wildlife especially the monarch butterflies. Monarch butterfly populations diminish every year due to loss of habitat, climate change, and pesticides killing milkweed. Join our local neighbor Suzanne Wells as she sells her own grown common milkweed plants started from locally sourced seeds. Milkweed is a host plant for Monarch butterflies. She is selling her plants for $5/each and 100% of proceeds are being donated to the Monarch Sister Schools Program. She has been able to sell a significant amount of plants already and has 19 left. You can place your order for pick up by either emailing [email protected] or texting 703-909-1653.

Plants can be paid for by cash, check (made out to Natural Partners), or Venmo (send money to [email protected]).

On Saturday, as part of our day of remembrance and reflection, members of @gpmc.dc gathered to serve the community by working in a garden. A garden is a symbol of life, growth and continuity, and the vegetables we harvested will help feed our community members in need. September 11, 2001 changed the world forever; but twenty years later, the spirit of unity and care for others remains. We thank our partners Cultivate the City , H St. Farms and Gallaudet University . #911 #dayofservice . . . “We Are the Leaders We've Been Looking For” . #lgbt #pride #blackexcellence #brotherhood #AfricanAmerican #blackpride #men #menofcolor #professional #corporate #network #youngprofessional #distinguished #educate #empower #enrich #community #love #hope

On this #TBT, we're taking it back to our February service project at H St. Farms. This project reminds us that, like wintertime farming, service is needed in every season and that the need is not always obvious. We must maintain a meaningful connection with the community we serve to understand its underlying needs and to step in whenever service is requested. Our commitment to leadership, friendship, and service continues and is made more important by the current circumstances. To begin, we enjoyed taking time to reconnect through virtual trivia night! We will provide updates on Monthly Trivia - May as the date nears, but be sure to mark your calendar for May 12. For service this month, we are joining Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, USA's national project for Spring Youth Service Day. For details, see https://apo.org/service-mission/spring-youth-day/. We are on the “Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity” team. Finally, as we are hunkering down in our homes, we urge brothers to lead in their communities by practicing social distancing and continuing to serve in this time of great need, whether it's through giving blood, making masks, or calling a loved one. Be safe and stay tuned for updates!
