Common Good City Farm Composts All Year Long!

While the farm is closed for the season, we are still busy throughout the winter! One component of the farm that we run year-round is our composting operation. We collect food scraps from the community and turn them into nutrient-rich compost to enhance our soil. You can contribute your own kitchen scraps to our composting program!

Recipe of the Week: Cabbage and Basil Salad

As the harvest season winds down, two ingredients we still have plenty of are cabbage and basil. High in vitamins K and C, cabbage can also lower cholesterol. Basil offers vitamin K, iron, and calcium. While these ingredients are not often paired, their different flavors can complement each other nicely! Check out the recipe below for one way to prepare them.

Friday is last day of open hours!

This Friday is our last day of regularly scheduled open hours. After November 1st, our open hours schedule is over and the farm will be closed until next spring. Feel free to give us a call or send an e-mail if you have any questions. And be sure to join us on November 2nd, from 1 to 3 pm, for our end of season celebration--a last chance to enjoy the farm until next season!

Recipe of the Week: Kale Chips

As the weather gets colder, the harvest season of our farm is winding down. But we still have kale! Kale is a low-calorie, nutrient-rich food, and can provide cholesterol lowering and cancer protection benefits. One serving of kale has more than your daily value of vitamins A, C, and K. One easy and delicious way to add kale to your diet is by making kale chips! Check out the recipe below:

Celebrate the Season With Common Good City Farm!
