Marymount University Promoting Urban Farming!

Our extremely popular Potting Kit Giveaway is back for a second year. Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture has teamed up with Marymount University again to promote gardening in small spaces. With assistance from Rooftop Roots, students started basil seedlings and on April 25th will distribute Potting Kits to lucky commuters at the Ballston and Clarendon Metro stops.

For updates on the Potting Kit Giveaway, go to our Facebook event page.

In addition to promoting gardening in small spaces, Rooftop Roots built raised beds on Marymount University‘s campus, which will be maintained by Marymount’s Food For Thought campus group. This garden is a Plot Against Hunger plot and the produce will go to AFAC families in need.

The Marymount Farmers Market, a local producer-only market, opens for the season on May 26th. Each of the vendors grows, bakes, roasts, cooks, or prepares all of their products within 125 miles of Arlington County.  

When: Saturdays 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, May 26th through Thanksgiving

Where: Marymount University surface parking lot, near the intersection of Glebe Rd. and Old Dominion Dr.
