About the NCF Network

The National Capital Farms network is a project of the Metropolitan Washington Regional Agricultural Workgroup. The Regional Agricultural Workgroup aims to protect and promote agriculture in the Washington Metropolitan Area by investigating potential approaches for sustaining an economically viable regional agricultural system through better support of farms, farmers, farm activities and programs and marketing of local agricultural products in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The Workgroup seeks to establish and maintain a network among agricultural professionals, local farmers, farmers markets, businesses and others to address common issues of regional coordination and advocacy. The Workgroup also functions as a forum for disseminating agricultural information among members, the farm community, elected officials and citizens. Workgroup meetings are held quarterly at rotating venues of its member jurisdictions.

This website is hosted by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments for the Regional Agricultural Workgroup partners. For more information about the National Capital Farms network or the Regional Agricultural Workgroup, please contact the webmaster.
