Urban Agriculture and Food Production Education


Alexandria City can use more Gardening and food production classes:  container gardening, gardening on cement or other non-porous surface, simple rooftop gardening-  will not only reduce stormwater run off but also produce food. $2000 will fund a summer intern job who will work with Virginia Cooperative Extension and Master Gardener volunteers to put gardening classes into every library and  community center location in Alexandria. Go Green, Get Gardening.
