From the Ground Up

From the Ground Up at Clagett Farm is a joint effort of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to bring nutritious, fresh produce to communities of all income levels throughout the DC area. In addition to raising vegetables in a sustainable manner on about 20 acres in Upper Marlboro, MD, this partnership works to educate the public about the relationship between agriculture, our environment, the food supply and social justice. They look at sustainability in terms of the whole community social and ecological – preserving a healthy and vital bay while ensuring all people have access to nutritious food.


Clagett Farm offers volunteer opportunities predominately during the spring, summer and fall months. Opportunities include weeding, mulching, harvesting, and many other farm tasks in various weather conditions. To learn more or sign-up, please visit
