Common Ground's mission is to cultivate habits of healthy living and sustainable environmental practice within a diverse community of children, young people, adults, and families. We accomplish this mission through:
  1. The nation's oldest environmental public charter high school, creating the next generation of successful college students and powerful environmental leaders
  2. An environmental education center, connecting city residents to the natural world and the sources of their food
  3.  An urban farm, modeling sustainability and contributing thousands of pounds of fresh, local produce to the community 
The Campaign for Common Ground: Our Vision
With your help, Common Ground will begin a new growing season. Together, we will:  
  1. Plant seeds - doubling farm production, and making sure ever serving of food feeds a stronger community
  2. Change lives - growing our community programs to reach 15,000 children and adults each year
  3. Grow leaders - expanding Common Ground High School to reach 225 students
In the coming year, we will start construction on a new building for the community, and our community of students.  The building will provide the learning environment our students deserve, and will create a welcoming new home for many of our children’s and community programs. Around this building, we will grow new habitat gardens and outdoor classrooms, model low-impact design, and make critical renovations to our current building.
