BLAST from the Past!   

Each week we will show a pic or two from our archives.
Things that happened at 9th and N NW  or in our early days on Rhode Island Ave. 

Life really happened at that abandoned corner. 
And life is still going on strong  in front of the abandoned school on Rhode Island Ave.

 Early Spring 2013. Before anything else arrived


We are ready with our caldron for evenings by the fire.


OLD CITY green became

OLD CITY Farm and Guild in Spring 2013       

We love adding life to places where nothing used to exist but cement and debris.

That is how we got the name,

“The green beating HEART of Shaw”.  

Thanks, Ralph Brabham
