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!
Next Saturday, October 29th, we will be combining our annual Season Closing Party with the LeDroit Park Civic Association to host a funcommunity 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 check our website and social media outlets for Farm Stand announcements.
