Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Tricia!

Tricia in the herb garden

Our resident Herbalist Tricia, has been with Common Good City Farm almost since the beginning. The farm moved to its current location in the fall of 2009, and Tricia began working on the medicinal herb garden the following spring. If you enter the farm through the Park, you will see the beautiful herb garden that Tricia has designed— full of colorful and unique medicinal herbs. All of the herbs have wonderful health effects, from calming an upset stomach, to helping mend broken bones and scrapes!

Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Nevaeh!

Meet Nevaeh!

At 9 years old, Nevaeh is one of our youngest faces on the farm! Nevaeh, who lives across the street from the farm, visits multiple times each week to participate in our LEAF after-school program. “I like all the people here, and the food is good!” she says. During LEAF, Nevaeh has learned about planting, environmental science, harvesting, and whole foods cooking — getting hands on experience along the way!

Unsure what to make with mustard greens? Try this recipe, which would be great even without the sausage for a vegetarian entree:

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.
