Faces of the Farm - Meet Adam!

Have you noticed a recent burst of color from newly planted flowers at Common Good City Farm? Likely, those flowers were planted by our volunteer Adam. Adam, who moved from Michigan to DC ten months ago, is affectionately known as our “flower guy” and has taken it as his personal mission to plant and grow flowers all around the farm. “I’m trying to make flowers look cool,” Adam says. And he certainly does make flowers look cool!

Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Charlie

If you visit Common Good City Farm, you may find Charlie working and getting his hands dirty! Charlie has been a member of our CSA program for 2 years, but also enjoys offering a helping hand whenever he can. Something about Common Good City Farm really stands out to Charlie, who moved to DC in 2008, and has also volunteered at DC Central Kitchen and the Food Recovery Network. “The people, the workers, the volunteers, the manager… everyone at the farm is amazing.

One of the most popular features on the farm are our beehives.

Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Melissa

One of the most compelling elements of Common Good is the sense of community that is being fostered on the farm. At any given time one can see faces, young and old, from different backgrounds, gathered on the farm to lend a hand, attend a workshop, and engage in a lively conversation. We want to share some of these faces with you. Each week we will take a moment to learn a little bit more about our community members. We hope you will visit us and become one of our Faces of the Farm. Every Friday we will feature a new "face of the farm."
