Faces of the Farm

Meet Vivian! Vivian is a long-time friend of the farm. Originally from Liberia, Vivian now lives in the neighborhood and has been coming to the farm since it was first started in Ledroit Park. When Vivian visits the farm, she likes to harvest and occasionally weed. Her favorite vegetables are corn, collards, okra, and eggplants. She also introduced us to the delicious and nutritious sweet potato green! In the picture, Vivian is helping us sort tomatoes.

One of the most compelling elements of Common Good is the sense of community that is being fostered on the farm. At any given time one can see faces, young and old, from different backgrounds, gathered on the farm to lend a hand, attend a workshop, and engage in a lively conversation. We want to share some of these faces with you. Each week we will take a moment to learn a little bit more about our community members. We hope you will visit us and become one of our Faces of the Farm.
