"Because we do not sell our produce, it would be a shame for the food we grow to go to waste. What better way to bring the community together for a good cause -- especially when Thanksgiving is right around the corner," explained Che Axum, director, CAUSES Center for Urban Agriculture. "At a time when more people than ever are struggling to feed their families, this is not only a privilege, but also our duty."
The harvest was donated to DC Central Kitchen. For their time, volunteers received a free bag of produce to enjoy over the holiday. Thanks to everyone for coming out! Additional photos are available on our Facebook page.
