When you step outside into 80 degree weather, it's
hard to believe that it's almost the end of October. But, when you
walk on the farm, the shift in season is hard to miss.
The tomatoes are gone, cucumber trellises taken down, replaced by
fall carrots and beets. Cover crop has been sown. And
while we've continued to welcome dozens of neighborhood kids,
school groups, volunteers, workshop participants, and Farm Stand
visitors onto the farm each week, we are preparing to wrap up the
end of our traditional season & regular programming at the
end of this month. But not before hosting one last party!
October 29th, we will be combining our annual Season Closing Party
with the LeDroit Park Civic Association to host a fun community day in the park.
Activities begin at 10am in The Park at LeDroit and include music
& performances, crafts, Halloween costumes (for all ages &
dogs, too), and opportunities for community members to provide
input into future improvements to the park. From 11am-1pm, Common
Good City Farm will join in on the fun and celebrate an amazing
2016 growing season with a free cookout, cooking demo, soap making
demo, and pumpkin painting.
The good news is, although the farm
is "closing" for the season, we will be
holding pop up Farm Stands into November. Please
