Common Good City Farm’s Teen Farmers Excel

By Abby Massey

For six of the hottest weeks in DC this summer, 16 teens from Washington D.C. and the metro region worked over 90 hours to maintain Common Good’s urban farm. In addition to working on the farm, they volunteered on other farms around the city and Virginia and participated in 60 hours of workshops about gardening, nutrition, sustainable food systems and life skills. The crew workers’ ages ranged from 14 to 17, with varying levels of farm experience—most had never set foot on a farm while a couple of the youth had farmed on a weekly basis.
