Itโ€™s #ThrowbackThursday, but weโ€™re just going back a month! Back in April 2021, our spring crew gleaned and harvested overwintered kale for our Farm to Food Bank effort. The kale harvested went to Fox Chapel Elementary School in Germantown, MD, and we were connected to them through one of our partners, Manna Food Center. Check out some photos from our socially distanced harvesting efforts and of us ready for our trip to drop off the donation.

Grower Spotlight: John Dillencourt

As the 2021 National Horticultural Therapy Week comes to a close, for many, itโ€™s really about gardening, growing plants, and being in nature. The many benefits of being outdoors and around plants includes greater happiness and joy, higher levels of reduced stress and anxiety, increased self-esteem and mood, connecting with the world and others, and relaxation. Red Wiggler Community Farm is proud to be a part of the community where people are empowered and can work, learn, and grow. Check out this video from July 2017 of John, one of our Growers, who loves being outdoors and growing plants.

In addition to experiencing the joy of having the seeds one has planted and nurtured sprout to life, two other benefits of horticultural therapy include socialization and empowerment. Working at Red Wiggler Community Farm, Growers have an opportunity to build a strong community by connecting to others, to be a part of a team, and to work collaboratively. Growers are also empowered to work independently and take ownership of their tasks where they are proud of their work and contributions. Check out this video from July 2016 of Nuno, one of our growers who has been a part of the Red Wiggler family and community since 2008.

Our Story

Red Wiggler Community Farm is a sustainable farm and recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides meaningful employment and healthy food for adults with developmental disabilities (our โ€œGrowersโ€). Although Red Wiggler has grown significantly since its founding in 1996, our vision of inclusion has remained the same. From day 1, we have been focused on linking customers to Growers with developmental disabilities through the business of growing and selling high-quality, home-grown, organic vegetables. Today, Red Wiggler is a sustainable farm where people with and without developmental disabilities come together to work, learn, and grow healthy food.
