From a press release:

As part of Mayor Gray’s Sustainable DC Initiative, the District government is partnering with BrightFarms, which will build a 100,000-square-foot greenhouse farm. In partnership with the D.C. Department of General Services (DGS), the hydroponic farm will promote local and sustainable food production in Ward 8. The farm will operate year ’round and will grow up to 1 million pounds of local produce per year – including tomatoes, lettuces, and herbs – further establishing the District as a leader in sustainability and fresh-food initiatives.
