Description

Common Good City Farm (formerly called the 7th Street Garden) is an urban farm and education center growing food for low-income residents in Washington, DC and providing educational opportunities for all people that help increase food security, improve health, and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Urban community agriculture can be found in cities across the country and the world. These farms and gardens not only directly provide fresh food to people, but also provide a safe outdoor setting to learn, grow and nourish. This relationship ultimately leads to the development of strong communities. Since January 2007, Common Good City Farm has provided over 400 bags of fresh produce to low-income DC families, taught over 600 DC residents in workshops, engaged over 500 DC school children, and hosted over 1000 volunteers.

Enrolled participants in our Green Tomorrows program receive a weekly grocery bag of in-season produce including fruits, vegetables and herbs.
