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.

Tony Senerchia grew up in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, DC where both of his parents were involved in community gardens, and grew food in their backyard.

Senerchia discusses his youth in Washington, DC including his involvement in the Boy Scouts. He gained an appreciation of nature from his college experience in suburban Maryland, and his time living abroad in Switzerland.

Senerchia later bought a home in Brookland where he began raising his own gardens, making improvements each year.

Senerchia discusses his experience with bee keeping at the Franciscan Monastery in Brookland.
