May Flowers

First and foremost, THANK YOU!!! 


We appreciate you supporting a
plant nursery for your gardening needs.

We are a garden center put together on a
slab of cement in front of an abandoned school.
An urban oasis created from nothing.
We have Annuals, Perennials, Herbs and a BUNCH of basil seedlings along with other herbs, vegetables and seeds.

We are happy & proud to be offering our fresh honey to the public. Several types of pollinators on our lot give our honey a special taste of its own. Buy local honey!
There are several hives in DC.

If you have allergies, we have connections. 
Local honey is great for allergies.

Established in 2008, OLD CITY green
had to move 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”.  

Thanks, Ralph Brabham
