Wanna help build DC's biggest urban farm with 1000 other volunteers?!

I'm recruiting from AIAS chapters across the DMV and need your help!

This year, DCBIA (DC Building Industry Association) will gather nearly 1000 volunteers to transform a 3-acre vacant lot in Ward 7 to become DC’s largest-scale urban farm, including: urban farming with a special emphasis on diverse niche crops, a farmers market, public art, nature discovery space for kids, a community garden, pollinator gardens, aquaponics, interpretive trails and rain gardens.

You can sign up individually or as a group at the link below. My firm, SmithGroupJJR, designed the community garden and the urban farm's raised beds so come help us get building!
