Greetings from the Greenhouse

It's February and things are cold here on the farm.  The cold keeps us indoors at this time of the year, and has a lot of folks wondering what farmers actually DO all winter.  So, let us catch you up on what happens at the farm during the winter months....  




Join our Herbalism 101 Series


Dive deeper into a holistic plant study for medicine: learn how to form a relationship to learning about plants, learn how plants can be used in a holistic approach to gaining health, and learn how to choose plants for healing with this 8 week course taught by April RameƩ of Antler Alchemy at Common Good City Farm.
**Each week, a new plant will be provided for each student to enjoy and add this plant to their personal materia medica.**
This course will run every Wednesday from April 4 to May 23 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.

Two scholarship positions are available for income qualifying participants. To apply, please see here.


Volunteer with us

Join the City Farmers program! City Farmers volunteer once a week on the farm during a chosen session and assist with our community programs and hands on farm work.  Volunteer sessions start throughout the season and registration for March and April is now available.  Read all the details and register here.


Bring your class to the farm for a field trip!

Throughout our 2018 season we will be offering field trips for all grade levels on Thursday mornings (and other times by special request).  This is a unique opportunity to build your students connection to the food system and show them how food can be grown in an urban environment. Check out our registration page for more information or contact
info@commongoodcityfarm.org.  (And help us spread the word to teachers you know!)

  • supporting your neighborhood urban farm
but:
  • worried about how to use the amount and variety of produce in a weekly CSA?
  • traveling a lot this summer and need a more flexible option?
Then join our Market CSA! Our Market CSA allows you to pay upfront and then choose how often, how much, and what types of produce you would like to take home from our Wednesday Farm Market.
