We are really excited to share Wangari Gardens with you. This 2.7 acre garden park in Washington, DC is bursting with creative potential! With a mission inspired by Professor Wangari Maathai’s legacy and a passion for community engagement, we are building a park to benefit everyone. We’ve started with a community garden, fruit tree orchard, butterfly/sensory garden, rain garden, outdoor classroom, medicinal garden, and pollinator hive. Drop by to grab a snack from the shared garden spaces, or reserve a private plot! Soon, we hope to start working on a walking/wheelchair trail, play space and playground, and dog park.
Interested in helping out? In order for the park to keep improving, we need your help! There are endless opportunities for volunteering your time and skills, whether it be through planting, fundraising, planning, building, teaching, or any other task you can contribute!
