The Marvin Gaye Greening Center, a base for educational and stewardship programming at Marvin Gaye Park, is a site run by Washington Parks & People. The 1-acre site is home to farm beds and hoop houses, an orchard, a stage, and an outdoor kitchen.
Nature Sacred will partner with Washington Parks & People to elevate the Marvin Gaye Greening Center, already a Washington Parks & People site, into a full-fledged Sacred Place that has the structure, codification, and support of Nature Sacred resources and its Firesoul Network. Through this site, together, Nature Sacred and Washington Parks & People will serve DC residents who live in close proximity to these spaces, along with additional visitors from across DC and throughout the region. This program is a direct investment in the long-term health, wellness, and environmental well-being of this Washington DC community and the citizens who call it home.
