Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture

Arcadia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable local food system in the Washington, DC area.

Based on the historic grounds of Woodlawn Estate in Alexandria, Virginia, thanks to a landmark partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Arcadia manages four distinct program areas that address a specific need in the community, while collectively engaging consumers, farmers, schools, and institutions.

Since its establishment in 2010, Arcadia's mission has been to improve the health of our community, support the viability of local farmers, and preserve the environment for future generations. 

Through our programs, we:

  • Work to address issues of food access and food justice
  • Raise awareness about healthy food and its sources
  • Establish innovative connections between local, sustainable farms and consumers
