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.

Pittman was born in Little Rock, AR, but his family moved to the Truxton Circle/Eckington neighborhood of Washington, DC when Pittman was seven years old.

Pittman notes that after his family's move to Washington, they became engrossed in city life and did not grow food, even when victory gardens were prevalent.

Pittman also discusses the history of the neighborhood where he grew up, noting that during his childhood, it was Washington, DC's "Little Italy," and reminiscing about his first job at Chris' Delicatessen at the corner of Lincoln Road and Quincy Place NE.
