The garden started with only a few wooden plots, but it grew quickly over time. The Tubman House uses a system of colors. Most of the fruits and vegetables are in green plots. They house the produce that are free for the community to take. The cash crops grow in red boxes. According to Amen, Restaurants like Ida B’s Table in Mount Vernon, will purchase red-box produce to use in their dishes. Tubman House has most recently been exploring black lots, which would be provided to residents in the community who are looking to grow their own food.
