Common Good City Farm: "What a Summer!  And What To Do With Your Summer Bounty"

Subject: What a Summer!  And What To Do With Your Summer Bounty.

Growing Food. Cultivating Community.

We've been so busy hustling and bustling all summer that it's hard to believe Labor Day is just around the corner.  As the season progresses, at various points the farm was overflowing with peaches, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, and a variety of other summer crops. Our Summer Youth Program participants enjoyed a fantastic (although seriously hot) 6 weeks on the farm learning about urban farming, food access, and workforce readiness while doing a ton of healthy cooking and holding pop up farm stands at the nearby senior citizen apartment building.  Our weekly Farm Stand has been dishing out summer favorites to our neighbors right on the farm as well as monthly appearances at the Bloomingdale Farmer's Market. Meanwhile Little Farmers and LEAF kids always brighten our day as we get to witness them discovering the food system.

Coming up, we'll be exploring what to do with the summer bounty with canning and pickling workshops and look ahead to back-to-school with Farm Field Trips.  Read below to see how you can join in.

See you on the farm!

Join us for Tomatopalooza, a canning workshop on the farm, in partnership with Washington Green Grocer.
