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.

Jones, a resident of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in northeast Washington, DC, discusses his early life, and his work at a local community garden.

Jones' father was a tenant farmer in North Carolina during the Great Depression. His family grew subsistence crops along with cash crops like cotton and tobacco. In 1940 Jones joined the Navy and flew combat aircraft throughout World War II.

Jones works community gardens with a couple who pick him up from the AFRH.
