Our programs address a specific need in the community, while collectively engaging consumers, farmers, schools, and institutions.
Arcadia Farm is located just a few short miles from downtown Washington, DC, on the historic grounds of Woodlawn Estate.
Arcadia’s demonstration farm and educational children’s garden currently encompasses four acres, providing a sustainable model of agriculture to new farmers, students, and the public through hands-on community engagement.
Veteran Farmer Program
Arcadia’s Veteran Farmer Program is a multilayered, hands-on educational program that develops new farmers; capitalizes on the growing market in local, sustainably grown foods; and encourages entrepreneurship and job creation.
Arcadia’s Mobile Markets are farmers’ markets on wheels that deliver crates full of local, sustainably produced food across the national capital region, catering to underserved communities that don’t otherwise have access to fresh, affordable food.
Arcadia’s Mobile Markets promotes healthy lifestyle choices by engaging community members at market stops and students at schools in the preparation of local produce in cost-effective, nutritious ways.
