Deanwood Learning Garden
Deanwood is a pulsating with new life, undergoing a powerful revitalization with economic development and environmental sustainability as key components of the resurgence. Included in this resurgence is the Deanwood Learning Garden, being installed by GWARDC and partner Parson’s the New School of Design. Located at 48th Street and Sheriff Road N.E. in Ward 7, this project is an outgrowth of the two solar homes that Parson’s is helping to build in the Deanwood community. Students and staff from Parsons’, Groundwork Anacostia, as well as a host of volunteers have completed 7 garden boxes that have now been planted with a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. This garden will also include a raingarden with foot bridge and a community garden box for growing edibles. Groundwork will also work with the families to educate them on how to live in a ‘net-zero’ home.
