In addition to making me happy, and helping Common Ground reach the $10,000 matching grant from Newman's Own Foundation,
Your gift can grow positive change in New Haven!
- $25 brings two students here for a field trip to get outside and explore the woods, taste in our farm, learn about wool with our sheep, hold a chicken, and more. Over 5,000 students come learn at our campus every year.
- $100 provides a 4-week farmshare for one of our high school families, delivering a giant bag of fresh produce and recipes to help incorporate the farm fresh foods into their diets.
- $300 provides a Chromebook for one of our high school students for the year.
- $500 sends a child to our Kids Unplugged after school program, getting that child outside and into nature one day a week for the entire school year.
- $750 pays for 2 high school students to work through Green Jobs Corps, gaining paid, environmentally themed work experiences, for example planting street trees with Urban Resource Initiative.
- $10,000 funds our summer farm intern program, helping four young people from CT cities learn how a farm runs.
