Guerrilla Gardeners of Washington DC is teaming up with Brothas Huddle and the residents of Potomac Gardens and Hopkins to landscape two adjacent parcels known as Potomac Triangle Parks. The community is organizing to reclaim these overgrown and underutilized spaces and make them more attractive, usable and safe - and keep them that way.
Several years ago, the Potomac Triangle Parks were renovated but the government funding ran out before any landscaping could be done. No provisions for upkeep were established either, resulting in the current conditions wrought by neglect.
Our collaboration aims to change that. We are hoping to empower the residents of this community to assume collective "ownership" of these spaces in order to improve and maintain them for their own use and benefit through "sweat equity."
We are asking neighbors to support and assist this effort with donations. Now is an opportune time for the Capitol Hill community to embrace the residents of Potomac Gardens and Hopkins.
Your 100% tax-deductible contribution will be used to support these volunteers and their work as well as establish a dedicated fund for continued upkeep and enhancement. All donations will be used for this project only. Reaching the campaign goal will ensure these parks will be maintained and further developed through the end of 2025.
