EVENT DETAILS

NEIGHBORHOOD FARM INITIATIVE HOSTS A NIGHT WITH NFI - A NIGHT OF REFLECTIONS

Saturday, October 19th at 7 p.m.

 

Celebrate the past, present and future of growing food in D.C. at Neighborhood Farm Initiative’s A Night of Reflections.

On Saturday, October 19th, the Neighborhood Farm Initiative (NFI) opens the doors of The Passenger’s Warehouse Theater at 645 New York Avenue NW for food, drinks, and a look at D.C.’s untold urban farming history.


The event will feature farm-grown food, garden-themed cocktails, and the unveiling of the D.C. Gardeners’ Oral History Project. This unique collection of stories interviews and reflections by D.C. residents reveals the changing landscape of local farming over the years.


NFI seeks to broaden access to healthy, local food to all families in our urban community. At NFI, our gardeners, volunteers and community members come together to plant seeds, harvest fruits and vegetables, and share stories and experiences. They leave the garden with food in their baskets and confidence in their abilities. And our gardeners and volunteers partner with local organizations to share our harvests with those who need it most. Together, we strive to ensure that families across Washington, DC have the opportunity to put healthy, local food on the table—no matter what.


We are proud to celebrate five successful years of offering fresh and local produce to the DC community. Join us as we change from garden boots to garden party attire! Tickets include NFI garden-sourced food, garden-themed cocktails, and our multimedia presentation on the rich history of D.C.’s urban agriculture movement.
