Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Ron and Tony!

Ron and Tony

Ron and Tony just might have one of the most interesting viewpoints of the farm: as Property Managers for the DC Housing Authority working at the nearby Kelley Miller apartments, Ron and Tony often enjoy looking at the farm from the rooftop! “It's beautiful!” Tony says, “I love looking over and seeing it, how it's all organized in rows.” “It really looks nice from the top of the building,” Ron agrees. They both appreciate the beauty, and the delicious vegetables, that the farm adds to the community.

Meet Adam!
Have you noticed a recent burst of color from newly planted flowers at Common Good City Farm? Likely, those flowers were planted by our volunteer Adam. Adam, who moved from Michigan to DC ten months ago, is affectionately known as our “flower guy” and has taken it as his personal mission to plant and grow flowers all around the farm.
