Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Isaac!
Meet Isaac! As many people may know, Common Good City Farm offers drop-in volunteer opportunities for all during our open hours. If you stop by during our Saturday hours, chances are you'll meet one of our most consistent drop-in volunteers -- Isaac! Isaac first started coming to CGCF in 2013 when he moved from Rochester, NY to Washington, DC after completing a term with the PeaceCorps. He wanted to farm but did not have enough space at his apartment. New to the city, Isaac used to the internet to find out about the open hours at Common Good City Farm. Once he started volunteering -- and building beds, his favorite volunteer task-- he was hooked! "I truly believe this is the best place in DC to come on a Saturday morning," Isaac says, "You learn a lot about agriculture without leaving the city, and there are really nice people." And agriculture is exactly what Isaac, who currently works at the Food Policy Research Institute, wants to do long term: in October, he will begin desert studies on irrigation. Thank you for all you do, Isaac! -- 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. Every Friday we will feature a new "face of the farm."
