About The Bladensburg Farm
ECO City Farms at Bladensburg is located on 3.5 acres of land formerly occupied by three multifamily apartment buildings. It provides healthy food for the residents of the adjacent subsidized housing complex and the larger “healthy food deprived” neighborhood. The farm employs permaculture and season-extension techniques to its large productive growing space.
With the passage of the Prince George’s County text amendment allowing urban farming in residential areas in 2013, ECO is now going full steam ahead in the building of its farm in Bladensburg. We have completed some essential water line installation, construction of the flooring and roof between the tool shed/kitchen shed complex (“Barn”), worm composting area (the “Wormhouse”) and construction of a new hoophouse. All this, and creating more beds for healthy food growing at the farm.
