More Veggies Means More Storage & An Exciting New Partnership

We have been amping up our produce production and have literally outgrown our current refrigerator and produce storage capacity. So when the Washington Architectural Foundation approached us to partner on a construction project through their Design in Action (DIA) program, we jumped at the opportunity.

Double your impact with a matching donation!

We are excited to partner with Jack Johnson on his 2017 Summer Tour and All At Once, a social action network connecting nonprofits with people who want to become more involved with their community.

From now until September 1, Jack Johnson's charity is matching all gifts donated to Common Good City Farm, up to a total of $2,500. Make a contribution now and your money will be doubled by the Johnson Ohana Foundation!

Give the gift of healthy, affordable food

Not sure what to get your loved ones this holiday season...why not give to Common Good City Farm in their honor? By making a contribution in your family member or friend’s name, you can help us increase access to and provide education about fresh food and healthy living.

Rooting DC 2017: Call for Presenters

Rooting DC 2017 Call for Presenters!
Date/ Location TBD February 2017

For the past ten years, the Rooting DC forum has been the central meeting ground for individuals and nonprofits looking to grow a healthier food system in the nation's capital. What started as a small gathering of like-minded urban gardeners in 2007, has grown into an annual event with more than 1200 individual attendees from across the city, and more than 60 local nonprofits and urban farm collectives sharing their knowledge and learning from one another.

Thank you for a great season!

Thank you to our Common Good community for a great 2016 season. We grew lots of fruits and vegetables and had many successful programs this year!

Thank you if you volunteered with us, shopped at our farm stand, attended a workshop, or participated in any programs or events!

Open hours, volunteer work days, and the LEAF program have all wrapped up for the year. The farm stand will continue through this Thursday 11/3 (produce for sale from 4 pm until dark).
