Dear PoP: Is PoW coming to LeDroit Park???

“Dear PoP,

Is it true that Prince Charles is visiting LeDroit Park’s Common Good City Farm this Tuesday?? Anyone have any more info on this bizarre story? If true, the Princes should definitely meet. A PoW and PoP photo would be quite nice/amazing, indeed.”

Indeed it is true! I got an email yesterday from Common Good City Farm that at first I thought was a joke, given the wedding and all. But it’s the real deal:

“Dear PoP,

Common Good City Farm has two very exciting Tuesday May 3rd events to announce—one on the Farm and one at Big Bear Café.

It is with honor that I write to inform you that His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales will be visiting Common Good City Farm on Tuesday May 3rd, 2011 from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. (The Farm is located in LeDroit Park on V St. NW between 2nd and 4th Sts. NW.) HRH Prince Charles is a long-time supporter of sustainable agriculture and we are privileged and grateful for his visit. We at Common Good City Farm would like you to join us as we welcome the Prince to our farm and neighborhood. To ensure that His Royal Highness can tour the farm properly, we’ll have to limit access to the farm itself but you can show your support for the farm by joining us in the surrounding area and sharing in the festive welcome for His Royal Highness.

Following HRH Prince Charles’ visit to our Farm, Common Good City Farm will hold a fundraiser after party at Big Bear Café from 6-10 p.m., involving mint juleps and music. A $20 donation is requested.

We look forward to seeing you and many of your loyal readers at one or both of these events. Thanks!”
