Urban Gardening, Virginia Gardens

BRAVO, the Arlington tenants rights organization, has been promoting urban food gardening in the community. They have provided plants to several apartment complexes in the County, including Virginia Gardens, not far from Columbia Pike. 

Numerous vegetables and herbs are provided, and are tended and harvested by the residents.

Virginia Gardens is managed by AHC, an Arlington non-profit affordable housing developer.

Thanks to Dennis Jaffe of BRAVO and Kirsten Buhls of the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service for their good work on this project.
