"Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets and the National Children Center (NCC)"
On 4-14-18, Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets volunteers got their hands dirty at the National Childrens Center "Farm Fit Program" 2018 Season Opening. (NCC’s) Urban Farm and Tree Orchard (located in Southeast Washington, DC) is a great place for community engagement and partnerships. Through the farm, (NCC) provides healthy food options in the Ward 8 community.
The (NCC) Farm Fit Program helps with the maintenance and upkeep needed for the site. The continuous farming includes turning over beds, feedings, and other labor activities. Volunteers experience a great workout while helping to maintain the land. NCC welcomes community partners such as Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets to volunteer.
