Girls Gone Green
Girls Gone Green is geared towards bringing women together from across the District to discuss the current health climate that children, families and women face in today’s society. We provide a communal space in which women can learn from one another’s experiences and use their stories and backgrounds to enhance the communal space. Through education, environmental and health stewardship training and leadership opportunities, our hope is to make sure every woman in the DMV has the access and space to be environmental leaders in their own communities.
Code Green is an after school or summer program that gets kids excited about gardening! Through our 6 week hands-on curriculum, kids learn about different fruits and vegetables, how they’re grown, and how to eat them. Code Green kids get their hands dirty in the garden, working to plant, tend, and harvest a variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Ward 8 Water Watchers
In collaboration with our partners, DC Greens and the National Audobon Society, we are building an educational farm and well to teach the youth about urban agriculture and healthy ecosystems. Currently, we are hosting events to provide free groceries, teach about and clean up the stream, and get the community excited about what’s to come at Oxon Run.
The Well at Oxon Run Park is a farm and community wellness space adjacent to Oxon Run Creek located in Washington DC’s ward 8 community of Congress Heights. In partnership with DPR and DC Greens The Well will be the host to Green Scheme’s youth programming, which will offer field trip experiences to schools, camps, and youth groups.
