The holiday season is upon us, which means end of season parties galore! This time of year, we are especially grateful for all of our wonderful partners and the community support that sustains us. We hope you can join us for two upcoming parties that are sure to be a good time and will also raise money for Common Good City Farm!

To celebrate another successful Green Tomorrows season, Common Good City Farm hosted its first end-of-season potluck with delicious meals prepared by participants and food donations by Oyamel restaurant. We spent an afternoon listening to jazz that was DJ’ed by one participant's husband. We were delighted to listen to Mr. Booker and Mr. Charles, whose families are five-generation Washingtonians. We enjoyed hearing their stories about the progression of events in the LeDroit Park community.

Common Good City Farm is one of the first beneficiaries of Cause, the philanthropub.
Located on 9th and U Street NW, Cause is a novel restaurant where all of the profits are donated to DC charities, after basic costs are paid. Common Good City Farm is fortunate to be one of four charities selected by Cause for its first quarter. We believe Cause is a pioneer in the restaurant business, and we are excited to be involved with such an innovative concept.

Even though the farm is closed for the winter, we are still accepting your food scraps for compost! We continue to process compost throughout the winter so that we have rich soil to plant our seeds in once the spring comes.
So please, feel free to drop off your compostable food scraps and we will gladly take them. Click HERE for more information on our composting program.

Common Good City Farm, along with other DC organizations, set up a “park” in front of the Wilson Building in downtown Washington, DC.
