Prince Charles Visits DC Garden

This afternoon, Prince Charles of England visited the Common Good City Farm (CGCF) near Howard University in the LeDroit Park neighborhood of Washington, DC. The farm's mission is is to grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs. CGCF used to be located a few blocks away and was named the 7th Street Garden. Washington Gardener Magazine readers will recognize the 7th Street Garden name from a Before-After feature we did on the gardens a few years ago.

Pictured here is Pertula George, CGCF Executive Director, chatting with Prince Charles near the compost bins, followed by a gaggle of press and security. More photos are posted from today's visit at Washington Gardener Magazine's Facebook page.
