Title

DC Gardeners Oral History Project - Rhoda Trooboff

Subject

History
Urban Agriculture

Description

The Neighborhood Farm Initiative interviewed members of Washington, DC's growing urban agriculture community to document the history of growing food in the city.

Trooboff came to Washington, DC in 1969 and began gardening at Friendship Community garden in the mid-1970s. At the time, there was no wait for a plot and she and her husband wanted to show their young daughter the where the food they bought in the grocery store came from.

Trooboff noted that since then, the plots have been subdivided to accommodate increased demand, and that there are far more deer and rabbits than there were in the 1970s.
