Sacred Greens is Pilgrims urban garden, created to provide healthy, organic produce for Open Table meals. As an Earth-honoring faith initiative, Sacred Greens thrives with volunteers from Pilgrims who design the produce layout, cultivate the soil, plant, water, and harvest. Pilgrims creates its own soil with members who fill-up two composts on site. Vermicomposting, or worm composting, is also maintained and used to create organic fertilizer for the garden.
Sacred Greens also included Sacred Bees, Pilgrims Bee Ministry. With handful of honeybee hives in the garden, our Sacred Bee ministry is a practical response to colony collapse disorder plus the bees are essential to our thriving urban garden. Our hives are maintained by DC Honeybees, a local non-profit committed to urban beekeeping.
