Out like a lamb?

As you may have noticed, our seasons haven’t been like “normal” lately. We knew it for sure when we broke an all-time heat record in mid-February, but even the tried and true “in like a lion and out like a lamb” didn’t really apply in March. The late snows are hard for the farm—we have tons of beautiful little seedlings ready to get planted in the ground!

Here’s what’s happening on the farm this time of the year:

Greetings from the Greenhouse

It's February and things are cold here on the farm. The cold keeps us indoors at this time of the year, and has a lot of folks wondering what farmers actually DO all winter. So, let us catch you up on what happens on the farm during the winter months.

Join Common Good as a City Farmer Volunteer!

“Longtime Grower of Things” Becomes New Executive Director of Common Good City Farm

Sam Wetzel hugging a tree

by Jill Schwartz

Samantha Wetzel’s roots to gardening run deep.

As a child, she loved helping her mother pick vegetables from their backyard garden in northern Virginia. She was fascinated with watching things grow.

Samantha, who goes by Sam, brought that passion to her own backyard when she grew up, creating gardens at the various places where she lived.

And she brought it to Honduras, where she and her husband were Peace Corps volunteers. Under the hot Latin American sun, she grew peppers, garlic, beans and more.
