Faces of the Farm ~ Meet Scott!

Rain or shine, we can depend on Scott coming to our weekly Farm Stand. Scott has been a farm “regular” since we launched our Stand last year, and always comes ready to snap a picture of our produce and “tweet” his finds out to his large Twitter following— something we appreciate very much! Scott, who regularly visits the Bloomingdale Market and the Arcadia truck as well, comes to Common Good City Farm because he appreciates what he calls “hyper-local food.” “I try to buy locally grown…. and more importantly, I like that Common Good City Farm is a group with a mission! I appreciate how it engages with the community, and supports programs like EBT to make the produce available to everyone,” Scott says. He says his favorite Farm Stand purchases have been our leafy greens like chard, arugula, and kale; “I just steam them up— delicious!” -- 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."
