Our spinach is finally ready to harvest at the farm! Spinach provides many important nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin K, and iron. Combine this healthy green with the natural energy and high nutrient content of beets, and you have a recipe that is both delicious and healthy!

Brian is one of Common Good's farm volunteers. He first started volunteering at the farm right after it was established in LeDroit Park in 2009! In the picture, Brian is harvesting microgreens for our Small Enterprise program. Brian loves all kinds of farm work, from harvesting, to bed-building, to weeding. In fact, he likes farming so much that he's about to start a year-long farm apprenticeship at the Farm School in Massachusetts! Good luck, Brian!

Here's a great way to use a lot of farm-fresh produce! Gazpacho, a chilled Spanish soup, uses a tomato base and many other types of vegetables. This soup is perfect to make on a hot day like today. Take advantage of this great summer recipe before this weather is gone!

Greg is one of our Green Tomorrows program participants. He comes to us from Prince George's County. It's hard for him to choose, but Greg says his favorite vegetable is the tomato. Greg's favorite thing to do on the farm is harvesting all types of produce. He really enjoys how much the farm can produce, especially the very tall okra plants! In the picture, Greg is harvesting rosemary.

Common Good City Farm traveled to the Highland Dwellings in Ward 8 today to host a workshop on the raised beds that we planted with the residents earlier this year. Activities included checking on the health of the summer crops, identifying beneficial and harmful insects, and planting the beds with fall vegetables like beets, spinach, and turnip greens.
