New Haven Ecology Project

Common Ground is a center for environmental learning and leadership located in New Haven, CT. We use our urban farm, public high school, and environmental education center to live out our mission: to cultivate habits of healthy living and sustainable environmental practice among a diverse community of children, families, and adults. Tax ID 22-3171185


Common Ground 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. We connect 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.
