The WFCW Block Club runs on super low membership fees and contributions from local businesses. This allows us to provide everything for free - from garden walks to holiday parties and other events. Please join!

ENVIRONMENT - Together we can build up a culture of participation, access, and empowerment.

ANNUAL GARDEN WALK - Every summer the WFCW sponsors a neighborhood garden walk. To get involved, contact us.

ANDERSONVILLE - We're proud of our community and want to do everything we can to make it a friendly and inviting place to live.
