Plant-A-Row In Your Backyard

Plant an extra row (or more) of vegetables in your backyard garden,or just contribute your surplus bounty to AFAC! Have herbs you're dividing? Extra tomato seedlings? We can use them! Drop off locations include AFAC (2708 South Nelson Street) and Courthouse Farmers' Market.

What do we need most? The most popular veggies are green beans, tomatoes, eggplant, peas, peppers and squash. Any fresh produce is welcome, though — whatever you are good at growing.

Get Involved With Existing Community or Church Garden Plots Against Hunger

Last year we had over 40 Plots Against Hunger in Arlington in community gardens, schools, and churches. These garden plots were dedicated to growing produce for AFAC. Many of these plots will grow vegetables for AFAC again this year and will need volunteers to help plan, plant, water, weed, etc. If you would like to volunteer, send an email to plotagainsthunger@afac.org.

Start a New Plot Against Hunger

Are you a church, business, group or individual with some land suitable for a garden? Can you get a group together to maintain the garden for the growing season? The AFAC client list has grown from last year and we need more produce to distribute to clients. We can offer advice and seeds. We can send someone to talk to your group.

Contact: (703) 845-8486, or send an email to: plotagainsthunger@afac.org for more information about starting a new Plot Against Hunger garden.
