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.

Brandenburg was born in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC in 1950, but he was raised on a farm in Clarksburg, MD. His father was a professor of agricultural history, and wanted to have a more visceral idea of the concepts he taught in his courses.

His family moved back to the Washington, DC in 1961, but the family had no vegetable garden at their home in Cleveland Park. After college, Brandenburg spent a year working on a kibbutz where he learned more about food growing.

This interview is archived as two separate audio files.
