Join Federation’s Jewish Food Experience® as we make a meaningful difference at Common Good City Farm, a nonprofit whose mission is to grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs. On Sunday, August 13th, we’ll be volunteering outdoors to harvest, weed and plant, while learning more about sustainable agriculture. Meet Jake Ifshin, Executive Director of Everybody Grows, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire and equip people to grow fresh, healthy food by bringing the home garden to everybody, wherever home may be.

Space is limited – register early. Open to everyone ages 13+
