Common Ground is a high school, urban farm, and community environmental education center in New Haven. We work to bring our community together and share a love of learning, discovery, and the natural world. We cultivate habits of healthy living and sustainable environmental practice among a diverse community of children, young people, and adults.
We want our place to be your place, too.
As a whole, 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 – young and elementary-aged children, middle and high school students, the general public, and environmental practitioners – 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.
