Thank you for an Incredible 2013!
2013 was an incredible year for Common Good City Farm. Throughout the year, we harvested and distributed over 5,000 pounds - more than 18,000 servings of fresh, healthy produce; engaged over 80 low-income community members through our Green Tomorrows program; taught over 700 youth through our Youth Education program, which includes field trips, LEAF after-school program, and Youth Employment Program; hosted 20 Growing Gardens Workshops; and worked with over 600 volunteers. These achievements are in no small part a product of our diverse, generous, and enthusiastic community of supporters.
