Our team left the drafting tables behind and volunteered at Potomac Vegetable Farm in Purcellville, VA to support DC Central Kitchen (DCK) with their efforts to combat hunger and bring nutritious, dignified foods where needed most. It was a beautiful, sunny day to glean the fields as we picked fresh squash of numerous varieties. Then our team headed to Bear Chase Brewer for lunch that included a spectacular view of the valley below. Great time spent together while helping others!
About DC Central Kitchen: DCK serves scratch-cooked farm-to-school meals in DC schools, delivers fresh, affordable produce to corner stores in neighborhoods without supermarkets, and operates fast-casual cafes throughout the District of Columbia.
Spring Flats, the multi-generational, mixed-income, residential community in Petworth, a vibrant mixed-use urban neighborhood in Washington, DC, was recognized again for its outstanding design, this time by AIA NoVA.
Design of the Spring Flats campus was a collaborative effort led by our Wiencek + Associates and included the Development Team, the District of Columbia government, and the surrounding community. An extensive campaign of community outreach and engagement was undertaken with local community groups, the elected Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, and direct neighbors to fully understand and accommodate community concerns. The result is a consensus solution that provides new affordable homes for residents, helping to implement the District of Columbia government’s ambitious goals of housing those in need.
Congratulations team on this impressive recognition by the AIA!
