Community Lunch with Whole Foods P St.

Thanks to the team from Whole Foods Market P St. for cooking with our summer youth today. The lunch was a great success, and don't forget to join us for the last lunch of the summer next Friday, August 2nd!

Eat Local First with Common Good

Common Good City Farm is helping DC celebrate Eat Local First Week! Our Farm Manager, Anita, gave an inspiring flash talk at Monday's kick off event but it doesn't end there. See below for other events that we are participating in.

The Cucumbers Have Arrived!

Over the summer we will post recipes featuring fresh ingredients that we are growing on Common Good City Farm. Check back weekly to see what we are harvesting!

Get CGCF Garden Goodies at Whole Foods P Street

We are teaming up with Whole Foods P Street to bring you herb bundles, straight from the farm! Each week Whole Foods will be featuring a selection of fresh herbs - grown, harvested, and bundled - by Common Good, coupled with a recipe to get you inspired. All proceeds will support our programs. Whole Foods accepts SNAP and WIC.

Our Summer Youth Program Is Here!

Our 2nd Summer Youth Program (SYP) has begun! SYP is a paid summer job that teaches practical farming skills while emphasizing teamwork, community service, and building life skills such as public speaking, financial management, and diversity awareness. This year in addition to working on the farm, our youth will be building raised beds at Union Kitchen, receiving cooking lessons from local nonprofit Brainfood, collecting the history of our farm with Smithsonian Gardens and much more.

Weekly Recipe: Mashed Potatoes with Turnips, Turnip Greens, and Swiss Chard

Over the summer we will post recipes featuring fresh ingredients that we are growing on Common Good City Farm. Check back weekly to see what we are harvesting!

At the farm, we are almost at the end of our Swiss chard harvest, but only on our first batch of harvested turnips. We thought we had better combine these two nutritional powerhouses while we have the chance! This recipe makes a filling, nutritious dish that can be enjoyed as a meal by itself, or easily compliment additional meat or vegetable dishes.

Summer Open Hours

Update to our open hours: From July 1st through August 9th, the farm will be closed on Thursdays, and LEAF will be taking place on Sundays only.

Contact us at info[at]commongoodcityfarm.org if you have any questions, and hope to see you on the farm soon

Fresh Beets are the Best Beets!

Over the summer we will post recipes featuring fresh ingredients that we are growing on Common Good City Farm. Check back weekly to see what we are harvesting!

Cooking beets can be time consuming, but when eaten raw, beets can be simply and quickly prepared. The nutritional value of beets is diminished when they are cooked for too long, so raw beets are not only a convenient option, but a nutritious one as well! Beets are a great source of folate, have a healthy mix of antioxidants, and beet fiber is especially beneficial to digestive track health.
