The Newark Street Community Garden, a four-acre site at 39th and Newark Streets NW, consists of 234 garden plots maintained by DC residents.
NSCGA is an organic community garden. The DC Beekeepers Alliance has also colonized a honeybee hive on the property. In addition to the garden-wide compost bins, there are veggie compost bins available for community use (training is required).
There are no available plots at present but we do have a waiting list – please add your name if interested, and we will contact you when openings come up.
As a backdrop to all of our efforts is the Washington National Cathedral and we often enjoy the Cathedral chimes as we garden. The picnic and garden area in the valley between the upper and lower garden area and the natural scenery make this spot a wonderfully peaceful oasis in an oft-times turbulent city.
