Rooting DC 2014

We are excited to announce our participation in the 7th annual Rooting DC conference, a free, all-day gardening forum that provides education about urban food production and consumption to cultivate health and preserve the environment. Joining Common Good City Farm will be a host of other panelists who are deeply invested in food and agriculture within the district. The event offers more than 70 workshops for beginner gardeners (e.g., seed starting, soil remediation, and irrigation), seasoned horticulturalists (e.g., beekeeping, mushroom cultivation, permaculture design), and citizens invested the larger food justice landscape. An information fair with over 50 green businesses and nonprofits will take place from 8:30am-1:30pm. The 2014 event will take place March 1st from 8:30am-4pm at Wilson Senior High School in Tenleytown.
