About the Foundation

People connected to the land and engaged in creating a sustainable world.

A partner of the National Park Service in Piscataway Park, the Foundation stewards 200 acres of park while honoring the indigenous people and values that shaped this land. By honoring the park’s river location, the Piscataway people, and the sacredness of this land, the Accokeek Foundation seeks to share with people and communities through nature, agriculture, cultural history, and foodways, the value that this land and soil hold, including evolving stories about different communities’ reliance on it for sustenance. Park visitors will experience the interconnectedness of all life as they come to know the historical and cultural significance and regenerative potential of the indigenous landscape that is Piscataway Park.
