LEAF and Little Farmers Take Off!

Toddlers and their guardians water the youth garden.

The opening of the season in April also means that our youth programs started as well! This year LEAF and Little Farmers are starting the season looking for signs of spring all over the farm. Little Farmers focused on seeds, talking about how plants start from a seed and then end up producing their own seeds. They also explored how different plants produce different looking seeds. Participants made seed balls and planted flowers in pots to grow at home.

Field Trips on the Farm!

Are you a teacher or know someone connected to a DC school? Starting to get excited about spring? Now is the time to sign up to bring your class to the farm! Common Good offers 90 minute field trips on Thursday mornings from April to early November. Our field trips introduce students of all ages to urban farming. The material covered meets DCPS standards and can be tailored to specific class requests. Topics can include: plant needs, composting and worms, harvesting, insects, nutrition and food justice.
