You don't have to be a Quaker and you don't have to live on Capitol Hill to join this potluck discussion about environmental stewardship and food justice in DC with the William Penn House. Check out the description below. The next meeting will be on May 7th. See you there?
Quaker Dialogue on Environmental Stewardship and Food Justice with DC
Sunday May 7, 6:30-9:00pm
William Penn House, 515 E Capitol St SE
Join William Penn House as we welcome members from DC Urban Greens, a nonprofit organization striving to offer affordable, nutritious produce to residents in Southeast DC.
William Penn House has partnered with DC Urban Greens for several years for both educational programs and resource-sharing--DC Urban Greens uses the second floor of our carriage house as a seeding center, growing seedlings to transplant to their farms! We are excited to invite DC
Urban Greens as our speakers for the month of May, especially as this is the season of new plant life and delicious produce.
As usual, F/friends will gather at 6:30pm and are encouraged to bring a dish to share (make it local, if you can!). See you then!
