Common Ground teaches us!

common ground Common Ground is a wonderful community resource, located in Palo Alto. If you’d like to get involved in their fund-raising or outreach, please take a look at their information.  The classes are held at their store and have such a variety that’ll you will find something: from bee keeping, herb gardening, tomato planting to (my favorite) “Relax with a 6-pack!” this group is knowledgeable, fun, and helpful. Gardening is not drudgery when they are around!

Did you know that Common Ground’s Edible Landscaping Tour engaged 400 people last year?
