More Info on Common Good City Farm

Common Good City Farm has a simple but powerful mission: grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs. It effectuates this mission by providing hands-on training in food production, healthy eating, and environmental sustainability. The Farm — located in the heart of the LeDroit Park community — provides a safe outdoor setting to learn, grow, and nourish.

Through on-site demonstrations and outreach, Common Good City Farm integrates people of all ages, classes, and races to create vibrant and safe communities. Since 2007, the non-profit has taught over 1000 DC residents in workshops, engaged over 1500 DC school children, and hosted over 2000 volunteers. One volunteer came all the way from England: just this summer, Prince Charles got his hands dirty at the Farm. For press inquiries: [email protected]
