Fort Reno Community Garden
Fort Reno Park, Washington, DC 20008 Contact: Martha Hamilton, Garden Manager
http://fieldtoforknetwork.org/community-gardens/fort-reno/

The Fort Reno Community Garden has been in existence for over 30 years, and sits on National
Park Service - Rock Creek Park land at historic Fort Reno. The garden is very small, with only 12
garden plots 25′ x 25′ each. The garden is subject to all the rules of National Park
Service gardens (i.e., organic gardening only, trash pickup responsibilities, et cetera). NPS delivers
wood chip mulch occasionally, and the gardeners keep a small compost heap and toolshed.

Friendship Community Garden

tommyt@erols.com
http://fieldtoforknetwork.org/community-gardens/friendship/

The Friendship Community Garden is located across the street from the Friendship Recreation
Center in Ward 3, on land owned by DC Department of Parks and Recreation. The garden is sort of
a triangle-shaped lot as it wraps around residential yards and trees, consisting of 50 plots
approximately 10′ x 15′, 15′ x 15′, and 15′ x 30′.
Friendship Gardens boasts a community composting area (a system constructed of used wooden
pallets) and home-made fencing of various styles constructed between the plots put up to deter the
deer. Garden managers are elected every few years.

Glover-Archbald Community Garden
42nd St and New Mexico Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007 Contact: Dino Kraniotis, Garden
Manager
http://fieldtoforknetwork.org/community-gardens/glover-archbald/

Glover-Archbald Community Garden is one of DC's largest community gardens, almost 3 acres in
total. It's situated on National Park Service land in Glover-Archbald Park, under Rock Creek Park
jurisdiction. Gardeners are required to garden organically and follow other rules given by the NPS
and the Glover Park Community Garden Association (GPCGA). The garden is laid out on a rough
grid system of roughly 150 plots each about 25′ x 25′ in size - however, the entire
garden is on a fairly significant hill. The Glover-Archbald community garden keeps up a communal
tool shed and community composting area, has picnic tables and logs for seating, and most of the
gardens have been enclosed by do-it-yourself fencing due to deer damage of vegetable plants.
Garden manager elections are held each year. There are currently over 70 names on the waiting list
for plots at this garden.

19th St NW and Columbia Rd NW, Washington, DC 20009 Contact: Carole Grunberg & Chris Otten
kaloramacommunitygarden@gmail.com
http://fieldtoforknetwork.org/community-gardens/kalorama/

Kalorama Community Garden is located in Kalorama Park. The parkland is under jurisdiction of DC
Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), and the garden is adjacent to Kalorama Rec Center.
The garden contains 19 plots, each about 8′ x 11.′ The Kalorama Garden set its own
guidelines as well as being subject to DPR garden rules, which includes that all gardeners must use
organic growing techniques. The garden guidelines stress respect, consideration, and common
sense in dealing with other members of the garden - for instance, planning your garden layout so
that you're not blocking the sun from other gardeners' plots, and helping out with communal
maintenance and cleanup projects. Another rule is that at least half your plot must be filled with
edible plants, not including herbs. The rules say, “One objective of participating in the Kalorama
Community Garden is to help our community offset rising food costs and become good vegetable
farmers.” You have to live within the community to get a plot. There is also a 5-year limit on all plots.
This allows other members of the community to get a plot. If you move out of the community, you
must let us know and give up your plot. If you move during the planting season, you will be allowed
to stay until the end of that growing season. Plots are assigned annually by lottery.

West End Community Garden has been around for about 25 years. It is located at the back of a field
near the corner at 25th and N Streets NW, adjacent to the Francis Recreation Center. The garden
is long and skinny, backing up against a wooded trail. There are about 20 plots, either sized
10′ x 25′ or 5′ x 25′. The garden is surrounded by a short fence.
There is no running water at West End Garden, and so gardeners have set up a series of various
types of rain barrel to harvest rainwater. This ranges from large trash cans and 55-gallon drums that
you dip watering cans into, to elevated barrels with hose spigots. The garden also offers a small
communal toolshed and a couple of wheelbarrows. All the plots are currently in use and there is a
30-person waiting list.

NW, in Ward 3. It sits in the middle of Whitehaven Parkway Park, which is under jurisdiction of Rock
Creek Park. Whitehaven garden has 50 plots of irregular shapes and sizes due to the battle
gardeners seem to face against the encroaching woods and ivy which now shade what used to be
more garden plots. Altogether, the garden covers an acre. Gardeners have laid down cardboard as
an organic mulch to control weeds in their pathways. The garden has multiple community
composting areas and certain garden tools for communal use. There is a waiting list of 25 people
with an average wait of two years.

In 1997, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith opened Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station, a
picturesque postage-stamp-of-a-town on the coast about an hour north of San Francisco. They
started with an old barn, made it beautiful, put in a small plant for making hand-crafted cheese,
bought organic milk from the neighbor, Straus Family Creamery... and before long the world found
them! From the beginning, they wanted to make delicious, artisan cheese, to be environmentally
responsible, and they also wanted to support their cheese making friends in being sustainable land
stewards. Today, Cowgirl Creamery continues to make just a small collection of cheese -- four, soft
aged and three fresh, totaling about 3,000 pounds per week. However, their circle of cheese making
friends has grown like wildfire and they now distribute extraordinary artisan cheeses from over 200
of America's and Europe's most prized producers.

Slow Food

Slow Food USA is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to supporting and celebrating the
food traditions of North America through programs and activities dedicated to Taste Education,
Defending Biodiversity and Building Food Communities. Slow Food USA believes that pleasure and
quality in everyday life can be achieved by slowing down, respecting the convivial traditions of the
table and celebrating the diversity of the earth's bounty. From the spice of Cajun cooking to the
delicious simplicity of produce at a farmers' market; from animal breeds and heirloom varieties of
fruits and vegetables to handcrafted wine and beer, farmhouse cheeses and other artisanal
products; these foods are a part of our cultural identity. They reflect generations of commitment to
the land and devotion to the processes that yield the greatest achievements in taste.

These foods, and the communities that produce and depend on them, are constantly at risk of
succumbing to the effects of the fast life, which manifests itself through the industrialization and
standardization of our food supply and degradation of our farmland. By reviving the pleasures of the
table, and using our taste buds as our guides, Slow Food USA believes that our food heritage can
be saved. Our goal is to put the carriers of this heritage on center stage and educate our
membership about the importance of these principles. We hope you will join us.

Slow Food USA oversees Slow Food activities in North America, including the support and
promotion of the activities of more than 170 chapters that carry out the Slow Food mission on a local
level. Each chapter offers educational events and public outreach that promote taste education, that
advocate sustainability and biodiversity and that connect producers and "co-producers."

Restaurant Nora became the country's first Certified Organic restaurant in 1999, long before the
term "sustainable agriculture" took up residence in the foodie lexicon. Nearly everything on Nora's
menu comes from Certified Organic and biodynamic growers and producers - from the cucumbers in
the chilled cucumber and dill soup to the grass-fed beef and Amish-raised veal. Herbs like rosemary,
thyme and mint are grown in the restaurant's own garden, where staff also pluck a bounty of ripe
apricots and nectarines to make cobblers, crisps and summer pies. Nora's menu changes daily to
match farmer's market finds and suppliers' deliveries. When owner Nora Pouillon first opened her
doors in 1979, she visited farms to pick up her produce because local farmers didn't yet deliver. She
also introduced them to then-exotic crops like Belgian endive, baby head lettuces and arugula, even
bringing them seeds from her native Europe. Nora's farm-fresh food and delicate preparations -
sauces are pure reductions and she never uses butter cream - are enjoyed by a following of
health-conscious environmentalists and politicians.

In 1997, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith opened Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station, a
picturesque postage-stamp-of-a-town on the coast about an hour north of San Francisco. They
started with an old barn, made it beautiful, put in a small plant for making hand-crafted cheese,
bought organic milk from the neighbor, Straus Family Creamery... and before long the world found
them! From the beginning, they wanted to make delicious, artisan cheese, to be environmentally
responsible, and they also wanted to support their cheese making friends in being sustainable land
stewards. Today, Cowgirl Creamery continues to make just a small collection of cheese -- four, soft
aged and three fresh, totaling about 3,000 pounds per week. However, their circle of cheese making
friends has grown like wildfire and they now distribute extraordinary artisan cheeses from over 200
of America's and Europe's most prized producers.
