DC Gardeners Oral History Project - Kevin Platte

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.

Platte discusses his introduction to the community at the West End Garden shortly after he moved to Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Over the years he became a leader in the community garden's governing body and is often responsible for reminding plot owners to keep their gardens tidy and productive. Platte mentions the former Temple Garden as an example of a well run and highly successful urban farm and West End's attempt to take in many of its members after it was demolished to build a parking lot.
