D.C. Central Kitchenâs Nutrition Out Reach Coordinator Lydia Mills prepares a section for seedlings in the bed of the Truck Farm in Washington, D.C., on Friday, April 6, 2012. She works within one of the 25 sections identified with the string grid attached to the Truck Farm bed. Nearby is a container of red wiggler worms that will go into the white plastic pipe worm tower, where decomposing food scraps will be eaten by the worms. The underground holes allow worms to burrow throughout the truck bed soil improving aeration, and their castings add nutrients for the plants. The Truck Farm is a D.C. Central Kitchen and U.S. Department of Agriculture Peopleâs Garden Initiative partnership that, like other Truck Farms around the country, will travel around the city to schools and community sites, teaching children about healthy eating and where their food comes from by using the garden display in its truck-bed. Along with other local donors, the Peopleâs Garden Initiative supports this âedible exhibitâ by providing seedlings and educational materials. Ms. Mills is on staff with D.C. Central Kitchen for one year as part of her AmeriCorps VISTA service. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
