Volunteer with Youth Programs at Common Good this Season!

Join us this season to share the joy of growing food with local youth. We need volunteers who are able to make a regular commitment to one of our education programs for the 2016 Spring/Summer seasons.

LEAF, our after school youth program, will be taking place on Thursdays and Sundays from 4:30-5:30 pm beginning on April 17th. If you'd like to engage youth with garden-themed lessons and crafts and harvest & taste fruits and veggies, be a LEAF volunteer once a week!

Season Opener ~ Saturday, April 16th

Happy Hour Fundraiser at Boundary Stone

Your neighborhood pub is hosting a happy hour fundraiser for your neighborhood farm - it can't get any better than that! Tuesday, April 5th 4pm-7pm the Boundary Stone will be donating 25% of happy hour sales to Common Good City Farm. Grab your friends, grab some drinks and you'll be supporting a fantastic local establishment and an awesome non-profit organization (if we do say so ourselves).

See you there!

City Farmer Program Full! Updated 3/17

Thank you for all the interest. If you didn't get signed up for City Farmers this year, we still welcome you to volunteer when the season begins in mid April. Open volunteer days will be during our Saturday and Sunday hours.

City Grown, 3.2.16, "Resilient Community"

Winter is the only time of year that farmers get to read, to dive into flights of fancy or to chew on technical dissertations. In case you haven’t noticed, winter is almost over, and my reading list is still pretty long.

Summer Youth Employment Program Enrollement Now Open!

To participate in Common Good City Farm's Summer Youth Program, we ask that youth enroll in the District Department of Employment Services (DOES) Summer Youth Employment Program and select Common Good City Farm as their placement. DOES enrollment is open NOW through March 9th (only 3 weeks!). All interested youth are strongly encouraged to enroll as soon as possible. AND for the first time, former Common Good Summer Youth Program participants have the opportunity to return to SYP as an Assistant Team Leader!

City Grown, 2.24.16, "Principles & Pragmatism"

There are about as many different kinds of farms and farmers in the world as there are organisms in the soil. Sometimes the job title of “farmer” doesn’t feel as if it has any internal coherence, that it can encompass so many meanings as to be meaningless. But I guess we’re united by the fact that we’re growing food for someone, and we get to decide how exactly to do that.

It’s that second part where the divergence comes.
