Many of you may be eagerly looking forward to summer vacations. But here at Common Good City Farm, summer is our busiest time of year – and we need your help! Our first crops are ripening and demand for our services continues to grow. For children who rely on their school to provide them with a safe place to go and access to nutritious meals, the promise of summer fun can quickly degrade into food insecurity and hardship.

Today, if you visit the Kelly Miller Housing Complex, just across from the Farm, you'll see six new raised bed gardens, tended by residents. The project was funded by the Diverse City Fund and Citizen Effect, and constructed with help from Kelly Miller residents and volunteers, including students from nearby Gallaudet University. These beds are a big step toward increasing self-sufficiency and access to fresh healthy produce in our neighborhood.
Interested in learning more about gardening, food preparation, healthy eating, and environmental sustainability? Come to Common Good City Farm’s Growing Gardens workshop series for hands-on training and education. The 2012 Workshop Schedule is posted!

Good, nutrient rich soil is the foundation of any farm. To make sure Common Good has the very best soil possible, and to do our part in recycling waste, we've set up an awesome composting program. Here's a short update from Niko, the compost manager for Common Good City Farm. You may have seen Niko perched on top of the 5-foot high hay piles or shoveling food waste on the farm!
