Shared Roots Site Application Now Open

Connect with food and gardening in your community


Shared Roots encourages District residents to grow food by connecting them to new food growing opportunities while caring for and building community in the garden.

Become a Member Today!

Application deadline is May 3, 2023

A member is a District resident interested in growing food and caring for a garden site. The member application is now open until April 24. Applicants can expect to be potentially matched with a gardening site by April 28. Each year there are more members than available spots at sites. There is no guarantee that members will be matched with a site.

Shared Roots Members must:

  • Attend an in-person Meet & Greet with the potential site coordinator on May 6, 2023
  • Sign a District government waiver
  • Grow food (to take home)
  • Care for a garden site
