We grow ecoganic vegetables in Northern Virginia, just outside Washington DC. We have two farms: one small farm in the suburbs of Tysons Corner and a larger farm in western Loudoun County. Our vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers are available at farmers markets, our two on-farm roadside stands, and through our 550-member CSA. We pick our produce at the height of ripeness every day–it's a quick trip from our fields to your kitchen!

This would meet and exceed the goals for a community park, and have long-term goals...
