CAUSES TV: USDA Beltsville Agricultural Research Center

In this episode of CAUSES TV, Dr. Ellen Harris, director, USDA Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC) joins Dean O'Hara to discuss the agency and its programs. UDC CAUSES conducts research and provides community outreach programs to expand knowledge about urban agriculture and urban sustainability, in the District of Columbia and at our research farm in Beltsville, Maryland, where BARC is one of our neighbors. 

CAUSES and researchers from BARC have worked closely on various projects to build knowledge and information to benefit residents of the District of Columbia, including the 2015 Urban Agriculture Symposium, co-sponsored by BARC. The agency also donated 22 tons of compost to the East Capitol Urban Farm in Ward 7.
