Sustainable agriculture provides a unique solution to food insecurity for D.C. residents
Think about the most recent trip you took to your local grocery store. How long did it take you to get there? Did you take multiple forms of public transportation? How accessible was your trip? For the many people living in the district’s Wards 7 or 8, it can take them a long time with multiple forms of transportation to get to their nearest grocery store.
Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture is providing a unique solution to bring food closer to D.C. residents living in areas with little to no food access. Outreach and education manager, Juan Pablo Echeverria, takes us along on a tour of Arcadia Farm to show us how their sustainable agriculture is contributing to food accessibility in D.C.
