Three Part Harmony Farm’s 2-acre plot in Brookland is co-managed by Gail Taylor and Cristina Flores. The farm has been growing bigger each year, since 2012.
The farm boasts 1/2 acre of intensively grown annual vegetables. We use agroecological and regenerative farming practices focused on soil health.
FLOWERS Annual and perennial flowers are planted on 1/8 acre and expanding. Find our flowers at the Mt. Pleasant farmer’s market on Saturdays from 9 – 1 during the season. Our farmer/ florist is available for weddings and private events. Please contact Cristina directly to schedule a consultation.
VISITING THE FARM
We unfortunately cannot receive visitors during our regular work day. To schedule a visit, you can email Gail. We do have one public event each year, which is a fall festival Stay tuned for the save the date.
CSA members and our crew’s friends and family are welcome to attend the annual spring open house. We will send out an email to you once that date has been chosen.
We receive a lot of emails that show us the incredible enthusiasm and interest in growing food, attaining food sovereignty, and learning about caring for our precious planet. Please understand that we cannot write back to all emails especially during the peak of the growing season.
Here are our recommendations for learning about sustainable agriculture:
The best, local training program is the Beginning Farmer Training Program run by Sarah Sohn at Future Harvest. We are a proud training site for this incredible organization! Can’t commit to an entire year? Don’t miss the Future Harvest annual conference, a weekend jam packed with incredible learning opportunities and community building.
To get your feet wet, or if production farming is not your goal, check out the annual Rooting DC conference.
To support Black Farmers and Black food sovereignty, check out the National Black Food&Justice Alliance.
INTERVIEWS, SPEAKING REQUESTS, TOURS
This year we will be focused on infrastructure improvements and formally establishing the farmer cooperative we’ve been nurturing since 2012. During this season, Gail will not be available for interviews or speaking events. On farm tours will be limited.

We absolutely do not have the capacity to help students with research. We recommend reaching out to some of the non-profits in DC who enjoy small and large grants that free up their staff to participate in these kinds of projects. Dreaming Out Loud, THEARC, Common Good City Farm, DC Greens, and EcoCity Farms are all great choices.
