Even though the farm is closed for the winter, we are still accepting your food scraps for compost! We continue to process compost throughout the winter so that we have rich soil to plant our seeds in once the spring comes.
So please, feel free to drop off your compostable food scraps and we will gladly take them. Click HERE for more information on our composting program.

Every week we will post a recipe featuring fresh ingredients that can be harvested right from Common Good City Farm. By Elizabeth Packer and adapted from allrecipes.com
We recently harvested the last of our sweet potatoes here on the farm, and now that the weather’s getting colder, it’s the perfect time to turn sweet potatoes into soup! This soup comes together quickly and it’s rich in vitamins and minerals and high in fiber. Serve with a green salad for a comforting dinner on a cool night.
