Arcadia Food, Inc.
Just a few short miles from downtown Washington, DC, an exciting and innovative new farming and food project is taking root. Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture is dedicated to growing a sustainable food system and culture in the Washington, DC area and creating a highly visible rallying point and collaborative space for the many local efforts and initiatives around better food. Our mission is to have a positive impact on the health of eaters throughout the region by combining education about good food and its sources with better logistical connections between the best local farms and the urban and suburban core of Washington, DC and surrounding areas. Thanks to a landmark partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Arcadia has established its operations on the grounds of historic Woodlawn Plantation, once a part of George Washington’s farms at Mount Vernon.
