2014 Summer Youth Program Highlights

Our 2014 Summer Youth Program (SYP) was a great success! This year, we partnered with Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s “One City” Summer Youth Employment Program to recruit DC high school students for a 6-week paid summer job and youth development program. Over the course of the 6-week program, the SYP participants learned hands-on vegetable production skills, visited surrounding farms, engaged in educational workshops, prepared healthy meals for the community, and even had time for fun and games!

2014 SYP ~ Meet Abby & June

UntitledAbby is a 17-year-old who will be entering her Senior year at Wilson High School. Abby didn't know much about gardening and had no idea there were farms in DC, but when she found out about Common Good City Farm's Summer Youth Program, she was intrigued. After 6 short weeks, she's hooked, and has even begun looking at universities that offer agricultural programs. "The biggest take-away for me out of this program is thinking about what I'm going to do after high school and how I'm going to use what I've learned here. This wasn't just a summer job for me."

Farm Closed Thursday, August 7th

We will be closing the farm Thursday, August 7th to host a special evening with our Summer Youth Program participants and their families to celebrate the close of a wonderful six weeks.
