Common Ground Farm - Getting Ready for the 2013 Season

Common Ground is apprentice, some volunteers, and two window air conditioner units.
Two air conditioners!  You may be asking yourself, what does a farm need air conditioners for?!  Well, they are an innovative way to run a walk-in cooler for our vegetables (on the cheap!).  If you're curious about how we use them, you can check out this video:
Please consider donating your old (but functional!) air conditioners to the farm.  Contact
Come join our team!  Farm volunteers needed.
Do you have an interest in plants, seeds, or soil?
Do you have garden or farm experience and want to lend a hand on the farm?
Common Ground is looking for greenhouse volunteers.  Volunteers would be willing to come regularly, ideally on a weekly basis, and would be an integral part of our farm crew.  Greenhouse volunteers would be seeding, watering, and doing other tasks that do not require bending over or long hours on the ground.  So if you want to volunteer, but do not feel up to field work, the greenhouse might be a great spot for you to lend a hand.
Common Ground is also seeking a perennial garden volunteer.  If you have experience pruning fruit trees, gardening, working with perennial herbs/shrubs this would be a great way to get involved with the farm.  
Please contact if you are interested in volunteering!
