Celebrate Earth Day at the Anacostia Community Museum. Attendees can meet community partners, enjoy family-friendly maker activities, and learn more about plant care. It's also the inaugural weekend of the FRESHFARM ACM Farm Stand, the only direct-to-consumer farm stand of its kind East of the River in Ward 8.

Activities include:

  • National Park Service: National Capital Parks East leads historical-based walking tours of Fort Stanton (directly across from the museum). 
  • FreshFarm Markets brings back the youth cooking and tasting activity, featuring a composting demonstration and help planting seedlings to take home.
  • Casey Trees teaches the importance of DC's tree canopy.
  • Chalk Riot returns with a new Earth Day chalk mural for the perfect photo op and creates a coloring book walkway, which will need participants' help coming to life.
  • Grounded Plant Shop teaches about plant care and gives away house plants for visitors to take home.
  • Bloom Soil will be joining us again this year to give away their soil to help you get your garden going for this planting season. 
  • Slow Food DC teaches more about celebrating local, seasonal, sustainable food sources.
