For the past eight years, the Rooting DC forum has been the central meeting ground for individuals and nonprofits looking to grow a healthier food system in the nation’s capital. What started as a small gathering of like-minded urban gardeners in 2007, has grown into an annual event with more than 1200 individual attendees from across the city, and more than 60 local nonprofits and urban farm collectives sharing their knowledge and learning from one another.
This year our goal is to “activate” the Rooting DC network. We’re turning Rooting DC from a noun into a verb, because so many of us in this city are Rooting DC every day.
Do you want to engage more? Visit the information area at the 8th Annual Rooting DC Forum on February 28th and get involved with our Partners. We need you. By #rootingdc together, we can build a healthier city.
