First, foremost, and always, THANK YOU!!!
We appreciate you supporting a
plant nursery for your gardening needs.
We even grow some of our own plants from seed.
We are a garden center put together on a
slab of cement in front of an abandoned school right in the heart of Shaw.
~An urban oasis created from nothing.
We have annuals, herbs, seedlings, seeds, along with shrubs and native perennials.
Oh, soil and mulch, too.
AND…Thank you very much:
OLD CITY Farm and Guild has partnered with Community Foodworks to bring you our very own Farmers Market for Shaw.
This is our second season.
Check out Facebook for our vendors.
Time to get your grill on!!
We had our first harvest of herbs on June 8th. We grow organic, hyper local produce for Tortino.
We have pollinator perennials without the chemicals. We are very bee friendly cause we have our own hives. We also love the lady bugs, praying mantis, worms and other helpful insects and creatures. The birds at the farm are a joy to watch. 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.
This is our 8th year hosting. We are proud to be the first to bring Lancaster to our Shaw neighborhood. Others have taken our lead.
Tell them OLD CITY Farm sent you.

Where People and Plants~and Bees and Flowers~Come Together.
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.
We are harvesting honey next week.
If you have allergies, we have connections.
Local honey is great for allergies.

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”.
Thanks, Ralph Brabham
