Port Towns Farmers Market
ECO is starting the Port Towns Farmers Market with a grand opening on July 11 from 10-1! Meet the farmers, taste samples of fresh produce and tasty foods, hear live music, with fun and games for kids. Location: Emerson Street & 58th Ave., Bladensburg.
Farm Shares Still Available
Its never too late to start a farm share! ECO still has farm shares available for Prince George’s County residents for its weekly CSA of locally grown produce. Each week offers what’s in season, grown by ECO City Farms or by partner farmers who grow using the same sustainable methods we do. Visit our Farm Shares page for more info.
Urban Agriculture Courses
ECO City Farms offers classes on urban agriculture with Prince George’s Community College, with a mix of hands-on, lecture and discussion. They re-skill our local community in critical food production skills and discuss significant themes in urban agriculture. Visit our Upcoming Classes page for our Summer 2015 courses.
ECO City Farms serves the community and without the incredible help of volunteers like you, we could not exist. Volunteer days are Saturdays from 9am to 12pm. 1st and 3rd at the Edmonston Farm and 2nd and 4th at the Bladensburg Farm. For more info on what to expect, visit our Volunteering page. Also, check our Upcoming Events page for any cancellations or rescheduling.
