  • Kudos to these volunteers! Does anyone know how they got organized? Given the yellow vests and cones on the streets, it looks like they are getting support from the DC government. I’d love to see something like this for the median on Rhode Island Ave in Bloomingdale.

  • So great!

  • Egad

    Good job everyone! The median is looking great!

  • Hi, PoPville and Bloomingguy. We’ve been organized for more than a decade by some wonderfully committed neighbors. The gardens span a couple different single member ANC districts and both the U Street Neighborhood Assn and the Westminster Neighborhood Assn.

    The impressive execution of the annual Vt Ave Garden (work!) Party is largely sweat equity, with a fair amount of prior planning to get sponsorships from neighbor businesses for breakfast, lunch, water, flowers, mulch, cones, tools, and even some raffle prizes for volunteers. The most important part is maintaining all the great work we do as a group each spring through watering, weeding, pruning, trash pick-up, and also maintenance of cut-through paths (that we’ve laid in brick ourselves).

    All very rewarding and fun bonding for the neighborhood!
