Community Gardens in Glover Park

Glover Park has two community “victory” gardens with plots available to the public. One is located at the corner of New Mexico Avenue and 42nd Street, and the other is deep in the woods of Glover Archbold Park south of W Street roughly at 39th Place. More info will be coming soon on contacts, rules and securing a garden plot. Our gardens originally were WWII initiatives to conserve food and aid the war effort (see WETA video on our gardens below)
