In Spring 2017 DC Natives partnered with Anne Miller and Almeta Dorsey in its first gardening season and have planted every spring and fall since.
DC Natives’ community partners led the effort to identify participants and worked to ensure that this idea matched the needs, capabilities and intentions of the local community. Participants are property owners and renters. For every site DC Natives:
- Visits with participants at their homes to walk the gardens
- Helps participants design their gardens and select plants to install
- Plants the garden
- Follows up with care instructions and maintenance support
