Building "Bridge Park Plots" in Wards 6 and 8

The Center for Sustainable Development has partnered with Bridge Park to design and build urban garden plots in Wards 6 and 8 of the District. Known as Bridge Park Plots, the gardens are all being constructed in partnership with faith-based and local arts organizations, in anticipation for the 11th Street Bridge Park, which is scheduled to open in 2019. 

Bridge Park will connect Ward 6 Capitol Hill and Southwest Waterfront to Ward 8 Anacostia and Fairlawn Neighborhoods. The gardens will serve as social and cultural hubs for residents and congregants offering the chance for participants to grow food, faith, fellowship, and finance. The locations of Bridge Park Plots are:

Union Temple Baptist Church
1225 W Street Southeast

Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative
165 Mississippi Ave. Southeast

Bethel Christian Fellowship
2220 MLK Ave. Southeast

Washington School for Girls
164 Morris Rd. Southeast

 National Community Church
8th and Virginia Ave. Southeast
