Arcadia Center for Sustainable
Food & Agricultural Center
Arcadia Hilltop Farm at Woodlawn Pope-Leighey

Alexandria, VA 22309
Join us for a morning of farm work alongside Arcadia staff and farmers! Come get your hands dirty, learn about sustainable agriculture, and help grow vegetables for neighbors who have a hard time getting access to affordable and nutritious food. You'll weed, hoe, plant, sometimes even harvest at Arcadia Farm at Woodlawn, acres that once belonged to George Washington.
Depending on the season and the weather, our morning may include collecting eggs and feeding the chickens, learning to use a scuffle hoe, spreading compost and wood chips, painting signs, repairing fences or building simple structures. All the food grown during the season will be sold at discounted rates in the Mobile Markets in low-food access neighborhoods; used in Arcadia's on-farm educational field trips and farm camp; or for special events.
This is a great way to get introduced to Arcadia's work and staff, and discover other ways your can help achieve our mission of creating a more equitable, sustainable, and delicious food system.
Space is limited! If you plan to volunteer with us, you must email your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, October 31st.
