introducing Love and Carrots, a Bloomingdale-based business

See this message from Bloomingdale resident Meredith:

Two long term DC residents, Meredith and Saren, have just initiated a home organic gardening company based out of Bloomingdale. Its called Love & Carrots, and their goal is to expand the local food movement into residential backyards, thereby getting more people to experience the benefits of home grown.

They offer custom organic garden design, installation, and maintenance services-- but that only underlies a new, unique and more hands on approach to gardening services that is intended to making home gardening as ``un-overwhelming`` and ``un-intimidating`` as possible. They additionally teach gardening basics to adults and kids, provide services like harvesting if customers are away, and to top it off, they will preserve/can your extra garden produce for healthy eating all winter!

Here`s a website you can check out:

You`ll see on the website that they are putting in a pro-bono garden for Cardozo High School to kick things off. Its about time the DC area sees a company like this.

Thanks, Sean! Fab Lab DC, in conjunction with local artists/makers and commercial property/business owners, will be using digital fabrication to create a series of artfully conceived and specially designed installations to be strategically placed on store-front facades and other areas of North Capitol Street to stir a sense of welcome, playfulness, and place. The initial target area is the 1400 block of North Capitol Street, NW. Plans also include a mini-festival & 'pop-ups.' For more info, please email:
