The GroW Community Garden is a block-length plot of land (located on H Street between 23rd and 24th Streets). It is supported by the George Washington University, and maintained by two student managers (employed by the University) as well as a strong volunteer base.
All of the produce is grown to support the work of Miriam's Kitchen: a nonprofit organization that aims to end chronic homelessness in Washington D.C. Miriam's incorporates fresh, local produce into the meals they serve to their guests Monday through Friday every week of the year. GroW produce goes right into the kitchens of folks who are housed through Miriam's Permanent Supportive Housing program, which transitions around 135 individuals experiencing homelessness into housing while continuing to provide supportive services.
