Common Good Launches Pilot Intergenerational Gardening Program with the District Office on Aging

Common Good City Farm has always been a space where people of all ages can gather to talk, eat, and grow food.

2014 Summer Youth Program Highlights

Our 2014 Summer Youth Program (SYP) was a great success! This year, we partnered with Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s “One City” Summer Youth Employment Program to recruit DC high school students for a 6-week paid summer job and youth development program. Over the course of the 6-week program, the SYP participants learned hands-on vegetable production skills, visited surrounding farms, engaged in educational workshops, prepared healthy meals for the community, and even had time for fun and games!
