Bloom is proud to be working with Edgewood Community Farm, a small but mighty urban farm in NE DC’s Edgewood neighborhood.

“As a no-till, half-acre urban farm, we use Bloom’s Woody Blend in our 50-foot growing rows to amend our soil each year and enrich our produce and flowers,” said the farm’s deputy manager, Nora Simon, who runs the farm with partner Jose Magaña-Salgado, pictured here. “We started two years ago and have used Bloom throughout that time to build up our soil layer after removing clay from our growing space.”

“Highlights of what we produce include strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, peonies, dahlias, herbs, cucumbers, beans, garlic, and even hops. Because we are an all-volunteer organization without our own vehicles, Bloom’s affordable offerings that they deliver straight to our fields bolster our commitment to regenerative, sustainable urban agriculture,” Nora added.

Operating on land owned by the Discalced Carmelite Friars, the farm donates 100% of its produce to the community, even operating an open fridge anyone can grab produce from at any time. The farm also partners with organizations like ReDelicious, which distributes surplus food from local farmers markets.
