Rooting DC

<< Back to Urban Agriculture main page

Rooting DC has been the District’s central meeting ground for individuals and nonprofits looking to grow a healthier food system in the nation’s capital. This annual, day-long event started in 2007 as a small gathering of about 150 urban gardeners and has grown into an annual event with more than 1200 attendees from across the region. Over the last 15 years, the event has been held in-person and virtually and includes educational workshops, networking space, and valuable community building where local food-systems stakeholders share their knowledge and learn from one another.
