Takoma Recreation Center Garden

Takoma Recreation Center Garden is located at the Takoma Rec Center in Ward 4, 300 Van Buren St. NW.  The garden is small, surrounded by a short chain link fence to keep kids from running through it – it’s located right between the basketball court and the soccer field.  There’s space for 8 garden plots, all of which are currently in use with a waiting list of about 10 people.  The biggest rule at Takoma Garden is “No Drama!!”

Since space is so limited, they try to give plots to DC residents although they do get requests from people in Maryland being so close to the border.  For more information, please contact Stacy Mills at 202 291-2055.
