We have Love doves, Robins, Cat Birds and sparrows. A crow or two, too….Oh, and bats at dusk..We love bats cause they keep our mosquitoes in check.   

Thinking about our bees and butterflies….Always!!

Established in 2008, OLD CITY green
had to move from its 9th and N location and so became

OLD CITY Farm and Guild in Spring 2013
Where people and plants come together.        


We love adding life to places where nothing used to exist but cement and debris.
We took over an abandoned school  and now grow hyper local produce, offer plant and garden supplies as well as host events.  


That is how we got the name,


“The green beating HEART of Shaw”.
