The DCBIA Community Services Committee has selected the UDC Urban Farm & Aquaponics Project in Ward 7 for this year’s 23rd Annual Community Improvement Day on Saturday, September 26, 2015. In collaboration with the University of the District of Columbia and the Urban Waters Federal Partnership, this year’s project will renovate and program this vacated three-acre lot with educational and recreational activities.

The transformation of the East Capitol Urban Farm provides research and development opportunities for urban agriculture while enhancing the quality of and access to local and sustainable food sources for the community. In addition, the scope of work includes community and themed gardens, nature play and demonstration areas, terraced farming as well as a fully functional marketplace.
