Honoring Tricia McCauley

Common Good City Farm is dedicated to honoring the memory of our beloved friend and longtime herbalist, Tricia McCauley. Our hope is to use our farm, in particular the medicinal herb garden, as Tricia did for so many years - as a place to grow, learn, love, laugh, and connect. Please visit our Honoring Tricia McCauley page to learn more about how we can collectively honor Tricia at Common Good City Farm.

More Veggies Means More Storage & An Exciting New Partnership

We have been amping up our produce production and have literally outgrown our current refrigerator and produce storage capacity. So when the Washington Architectural Foundation approached us to partner on a construction project through their Design in Action (DIA) program, we jumped at the opportunity.
