Common Ground Garden

Our beautiful Common Ground Garden is located at 687 Arastradero Road in Palo Alto.  The garden is a project of Ecology Action, and its focus is teaching people to grow food sustainably. It is a wonderful place for people of all ages to learn about using Biointensive gardening to produce food, build soil and conserve resources - especially water!


We will provide gardening classes and workshops throughout the year, and also work with local schools through our youth education program.  We are so grateful for your support! For a schedule of classes and more information about the garden, please visit our website at:
