Description:

Common Ground is a center for environmental learning and leadership located in New Haven, CT. It is a place where all members of the community can find connections to the local environment, each other, and opportunities for learning and engagement. Common Ground connects farm, forest, and city.  Our working farm includes production and educational gardens, and a variety of animals. Located at the base of West Rock Ridge, our site includes 20 acres of forest with hiking trails, wildlife, and diverse natural habitats. Within New Haven city limits, Common Ground seeks to explore urban ecology and develop paths to urban sustainability. On this tour, you’ll learn more about Common Ground as a whole, the work we do on the farm in relationship to education and production, and be able to directly help the farm by getting your hands in the dirt. Weather depending, folks will work in our production high tunnels to prepare beds for Spring growing, and helping out with our animals. Please wear layers, clothes you feel ok getting dirty and a water bottle.
