This weekend Common Good City Farm staff and volunteers traveled across the river to the Highland Dwellings in Ward 8 to build raised beds for the residents of the public housing complex. This project, funded by the District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA), will bring residents of the Highland Dwellings together to grow fresh, healthy food for their community. Common Good, with the help of volunteers, residents, and DCHA staff, transformed a forgotten strip of land into a garden area that will not only produce nutritious food, but can also become a social gathering place.
Today is the day that Common Good joins hundreds of local nonprofits to participate in the United Way NCA's DoMore24 Campaign, a 24 hour online giving campaign. We hope that you support this exciting initiative by donating to Common Good City Farm TODAY. Don't forget to tell your friends!
